Rodrigo y Gabriela (Rodrigo and Gabriela) are a Mexican acoustic guitar duo whose music is influenced by a wide variety of genres (types of music) including modern flamenco, rock, and even heavy metal. The duo’s recordings consist largely of instrumental duets on the flamenco guitar like in today’s clip.
Flamenco is specific to southern Spain and the region of Andalucia. It has a range of influences which include Romani and northern African. The music always features a guitar and may also have singing and very complicated clapping patterns.
