Auction to benefit the campaign to secure the release of Luis Angel Quintana Saucedo and Ilse Elizabeth Ramirez Reyes.
You might have already seen Rodrigo y Gabriela highlighting the case of Luis Angel Quintana Saucedo and Ilse Elizabeth Ramirez Reyes, a young couple who were arrested during a police raid on their apartment in Mexico. The raid targeted criminals who happened to be living in the same building. Luis and Ilse are respected members of the artistic community in Zihuatanejo and are not involved in criminality of any kind. Luis is the bass player for Xpresion Inmune, a local rock group while Ilse worked at a bank before returning to Zihuatenejo so they could move in together. The couple continue to be held in a dangerous federal prison.
Rod and Gab have been keen to highlight the plight of this young couple through social media posts urging people to sign the change.org petition and through their participation in a special fundraising benefit concert held in Zihuatenejo . As part of their continued support for the campaign to secure their release Gabriela is offering for auction her personal Yamaha custom shop guitar.
This is the guitar which Gabriela has used to record the 11:11, Area 52 and 9 Dead Alive albums. It is her personal primary guitar which has been by her side for the last ten years. Gabriela has performed with the guitar at concerts at Red Rocks, The Hollywood Bowl, Radio City Music Hall, The White House, The Sydney Opera House, Glastonbury, Bonaroo, Coachella and on television shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night With Jay Leno.
The guitar was manufactured in the Yamaha Japan Custom shop to Gabriela’s personal specifications. This is a one off opportunity to own a piece of Rodrigo y Gabriela history. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the campaign to secure the release of Luis and Elizabeth.
Rod and Gab will take a break from writing new material for their next record and are heading out on tour this June and July , as they celebrate the tenth anniversary re-release of the Rodrigo y Gabriela album.
Originally released in Ireland in 2006, the album topped the charts ahead of Johnny Cash and the Arctic Monkeys, and a US release on ATO Records followed in 2007. “Rodrigo y Gabriela” was produced by Rodrigo and Gabriela with John Leckie, best known for his work with Radiohead and The Stone Roses. Affectionately known to fans as “the Crocodile album”, the record has gone on to sell 750,000 copies worldwide.
Speaking of the Rodrigo y Gabriela album Rodrigo said, “We are busy at work on our new record, but looking back at this album, it’s good to be reminded of how far we’ve come in ten years. We’re looking forward to playing those songs this summer”.
Rodrigo y Gabriela will play the following shows in Europe this summer.

We are sorry to disappoint you but the release date for Rodrigo y Gabriela (Deluxe Edition) has changed. Due to longer than anticipated vinyl production time, and our wish for this release to be of the highest possible quality we must, sadly, delay the release of the album.
CD + DVD and Digital versions of the album will now be released on the 5th May 2017. The deluxe vinyl will be released on 2nd June.
This change to the release date will be worldwide and the album will not be available digitally or in any stores prior to these dates. All orders from Bandcamp through RodGab.com will be shipped prior to these dates. All vinyl pre-orders will receive their album download on 5th May with the vinyl following in June.
We would hate to leave you without any good news and so we can, with great excitement, tell you that Rod and Gab have so much enjoyed revisiting this breakthrough album that they have decided to tour the album in full this summer in Europe and the United States.
Details of these new tour dates are due to be announced soon.
For Those About To Rock – a documentary film which profiles the story of Rodrigo y Gabriela is now available to rent or own. The film tells the story of two Mexicans who decided to risk everything to pursue a life of music. The combination of their adventurous spirit, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck took them from performing at anonymous hotels and restaurants in their Ixtapa to, just a few years later, to the stages of the most important venues and festivals around the world.
