Just found this on NPR today. The quickly rising guitar player duo of Rodrigo & Gabriela are simply amazing. No one is really sure what makes them so amazing…until hearing/seeing them. It’s just a guy and a girl playing Spanish guitars, very fast. Sure there are many out there who can do this, but the way they fuse their styles together makes this music simply amazing. Here’s a rare performance in a bar in Dublin. Prepare yourself if you’re a first timer.

Just came across this catchy track from Dinosaur today. It’s weird to hear Cumbia music with Irish sounding vocals over the top. It reminds me a lot of Delhi 2 Dublin, except they have this mix of Bhangra and Celtic. I like seeing this more and more and wish it was more prevalent in the States.
