At Studio Trilogy are (l-r) Rodrigo Sanchez, producer/engineer Justin Lieberman and Gabriela Quintero.
San Francisco, CA (November 5, 2013)—San Francisco’s Studio Trilogy recently hosted a live performance by Latin guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela that was broadcast via ISDN on L.A.’s KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic radio show.
Trilogy producer/engineer Justin Leiberman recorded and mixed the performance, and radio host Jason Bentley interviewed the duo, who also previewed three new songs in advance of their KCRW World Festival appearance at the Hollywood Bowl.
Rodrigo y Gabriela first gained popularity by playing on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, and gained a sizeable cult following. To date, they have sold in excess of 1.2 million albums. In 2011, they collaborated with Hans Zimmer on the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides soundtrack, as well as contributing to the soundtrack for the Shrek prequel, Puss in Boots.
They regularly dismiss being classified in any one particular genre of music, preferring to say they play a fusion of many influences. Both Rodrigo and Gabriela play Yamaha NX series electro nylon string guitars exclusively. Rodrigo plays the slimmer neck NTX1200 and Gabriela plays the more traditional sized NCX2000 and NCX1200.
