Rod and Gab joined host Felix Contreras for an in depth chat on NPR’s Alt Latino.
On this episode of Alt.Latino, they take a deep dive into their musical DNA to get a more complete picture of how their disparate musical influences come together to create a sound that is immediately identified as “Rod y Gab.”
They asked Rodrigo y Gabriela to bring in a handful of songs that have influenced them. As musicians say of one another, they have “big ears,” meaning they listen to a wide variety of genres and styles. Punk, jazz, funk and, of course, metal. Now that they mention it, yeah… I can hear it all.
