i just saw the above video for “diablo rojo” by rodrigo y gabriela. i had heard their first single, “tamacun” on XRT several times before and really loved it. when i heard this song tonight, i knew i had to share it with you. i am especially enamored of it since i recently saw a group called los folkloristas at the old town school of folk music.
they formed back in 1966 and they combine various styles of latin american music, using many varied instruments. all of the members play nearly all of the different instruments. they range from guitar to flute, pan flute to violin, varying percussion instruments and instruments that were used in ancient times. they were absolutely amazing. i highly recommend them. so, rodrigo y gabriela are right up my alley. kudos.
okay. time for bed, i think.
