Gabriela – Guitar Auction in aid of Luis Angel Quintana Saucedo and Ilse Elizabeth Ramirez Reyes.

You can own Gabriela’s personal guitar.

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.

Full details of the guitar can be seen on the auction page.  Bidding is open now and the auction will close on Sunday 7th May.

New release dates

CD + DVD / Digital – 5th May 2017

Vinyl – 2nd June 2017

 

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.

Rod y Gab joined by Robert Trujilo & Marty Friedman at Hollywood Bowl

Rodrigo y Gabriela stormed the Hollywood Bowl this past Sunday night, 14th August.    The duo performed a set of classic Rod Gab compositions, transformed with brand new orchestral arrangements.  They were accompanied for much of the show by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.  They were also joined on stage by Megadeath guitarist Marty Friedman for a blistering run through of Astor Piazolla’s “Oblivion” and by Metallica bassist Robert Trullo for a medley of classic Metallica songs.

Check out this fantastic write up of the full show from MxDwn.

Live Manchester And Dublin Vinyl now available from RodGab.com

Originally released as a Record Store Day 2016 exclusive release we have a small number of Live Manchester and Dublin LPs left and currently for sale in the RodGab.com shop.

Album tracklisting

  1. Foc
  2. Hola
  3. One / Take FIve
  4. Mr Tang
  5. Paris
  6. Libertango
  7. Capitan Casanova
  8. One

For this special release the album was specially remastered for vinyl from the original source recording by Ray Staff at Air Studios.

Writing in the Guardian at the time of the original album release, journalist John Walters wrote, “Rodrigo y Gabriela’s Live Manchester and Dublin could justifiably claim “traces of heavy metal”. Their Mexican-Flamenco guitar duo repertoire includes a cover of Metallica’s One that moves into Paul Desmond’s Take Five, with a snatch of the White Stripes. There’s a wild streak to these recordings I’ve not heard in previous performances by Rodrigo y Gabriela, and it’s very welcome. This is a World Music album that swings.”
