WASHINGTON, DC.-—The Kennedy Center presents Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo Rodrigo y

Gabriela on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 at 8 p.m. in the Concert Hall, as part of their 2015–2016

tour. Making their Kennedy Center debut, the internationally acclaimed duo performs a unique

blend of metal, jazz, and world music. Tickets start at $29.

Rodrigo Sánchez and Gabriela Quintero have been playing together for more than 15

years. The musicians began their collaboration as young thrash metal fans in their native Mexico

City, moved abroad and performed as street musicians in Dublin, Ireland, and finally became the

globe-straddling, film-scoring, record-breaking touring artists that they are today. Known for

their exhilarating live shows, Rodrigo y Gabriela have won the hearts of music lovers across the

globe—from Cuba to California, and as far as the festival fields of Europe. The interplay

between Rodrigo’s fiery lead lines and Gabriela’s rhythmic battery is of universal appeal.

Their fifth studio album, 9 Dead Alive, was released in April 2014 and it highlights

intimate songs and intuitive playing that bursts with melodic energy and rhythmic invention.

Recorded at their Pacific Coast hideaway, the record was distilled into nine songs that capture

the two skilled musicians riffing and jamming together, teeming with desire, elegance, and gusto.

In addition to their five studio albums, three live albums, and single EP, Rodrigo y

Gabriela collaborated with composer Hans Zimmer on the film score for Pirates of the

Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, as well as contributed to the soundtrack for Puss in Boots.
