Rodrigo y Gabriela took to the Roundhouse stage with their usual charm and spirit / The Up Coming review

Celebrating the tenth year anniversary of their self-titled LP – now re-released as the newly remastered Crocodile Album – Rodrigo y Gabriela took to the Roundhouse stage on Tuesday 6/27 with their usual charm and fiery spirit in a strong homage to their busking days in Dublin, Ireland where they first gained critical acclaim.

Kicking off the gig with two of their most popular songs, Torito and Diablo Rojo, the Mexican duo proved they haven't slowed down a bit, as the thumping rhythmic guitar wound through the audience, impassioning them to a frenzy of cheers and whoops. Despite a wheelchair-bound Gabriela, who explained an injury to her leg would prevent her usual dancing across the stage, the pair were no less fiery, with her hands blurring to imperceptible speeds of her signature percussion and rhythm guitar.    Photo: Erol Birsen
