Rodrigo y Gabriela – Orion


Not new news, but this can’t not be seen – Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela have been turning heads with their nylon-string cover of Metallica’s “Orion.” Rodrigo’s flatpicking makes an interesting contrast with Gabriela’s percussive rasgueado technique. Evidently, the couple cut their teeth in metal bands in Mexico (they’ve also covered Metallica’s “One”) before journeying to Dublin and Denmark, busking for a living. Busking friend Damien Rice took them on tour; now the pair is hitting the charts in the US and UK, with recent exposure on MTV. Quite a story! Apparently, an EP of Metallica covers is on the way. The highlight of the video is Gabriela’s painted toenails tapping away, a most un-metallic sight.
