Mettavolution announced as Grammy Winning album at the 2020 Awards!

Mettavolution has taken home the Grammy Award for ‘Best Contemporary Instrumental Album’ at the 2020 awards!

We are incredibly thankful. This is quite a moment for us. We are grateful for this opportunity to share this Grammy with our families and fans all over the world, with a big hug and also to our potential fans!

After 20 years, and having played all over the world, even for President Obama in The White House, there was something missing — a Grammy. We finally got it. Rodrigo and I are people that care about many of the challenges that we are facing as a species. Mettavolution is an album about change and growth. Through music, we truly believe that we can share, at an emotional level, healing and to bring about ideas that might help to solve a lot of those challenges. We wanted to create something as unique as possible. It is important for us to feel that we are contributing something with our music. The way we perform, the way we write and produce our albums; it has been a lot of years of hard work and it feels great. A special start to the new decade, it will make us even more inspired. This is the cherry on the cake. Thank you to the Academy. Winning a Grammy will help give us a louder voice to reach more people. Thank you to our management, label partners all over the world. Keep connected everyone, we are connected with you through our music. ~ Gab

The most amazing part of winning a Grammy is the huge sense of happiness that goes around between people we love and people that love us. I hope to go beyond the recognition itself to use it for something positive that can transform as many stories as possible. To all the fans around the world for supporting our music – we love you all and we can’t wait to go back to work to keep making music that inspires you. ~ Rod

Gamma State – Amazon Original

Today, Rodrigo y Gabriela release a brand-new Amazon Original song, “Gamma State,” available on Amazon Music.  Originally a demo from the sessions for Mettavolution, Rod and Gab returned to the studio to flesh out the song into an intense and exhilarating guitar-centric sprint.

Speaking of the song Rod said, “The first sketches of this song started a couple of years ago, when we started writing for the new album. We road-tested it on tour in Australia last year and it went down well with our fans there.  However, as we zoomed in on recording Mettavolution with Dave Sardy in Los Angeles, it became apparent that it didn’t quite sit with the rest of the songs on the record,  So we are very happy that ‘Gamma State’ is now finally coming out into the world.”

Rodrigo y Gabriela have been bringing their incendiary stage performance to fans across the globe in support of their latest album, METTAVOLUTION. The acoustic duo’s first album in five years, METTAVOLUTION marks the most ambitious music of Rodrigo y Gabriela’s remarkable two-decade career and was one of NPR’s top 6 albums of the week upon release. Three years in the making, the LP embraces the duo’s passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species, all expressed through the medium of two acoustic guitars.
