Rodrigo y Gabriela (Rodrigo and Gabriela) is a Mexican musical duo who specialize in playing fast, rhythmic acoustic guitars. The musicians gained a reputation by playing on the streets of Dublin, Ireland and gained a cult following.
They regularly dismiss being classified in a particular genre of music, preferring to say they play a fusion of many influences. Rodrigo y Gabriela have sold in excess of 1.2 million albums. In 2010, the duo grabbed headlines when they performed at the White House for President Barack Obama. Most notably, in 2011, they collaborated with Hans Zimmer on the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides soundtrack while also contributing to the soundtrack for the Shrek prequel Puss in Boots.
