Rodrigo y Gabriela Live on Conan O’Brien

Rodrigo y Gabriela, who are currently on tour in support of their new album “11:11” released in September, made a stop at the Conan O’Brien show on October the 1th where they performed Live the first single – Buster Voodoo – from their new album.

11:11” is the long sought after follow up to Rodrigo y Gabriela‘s self-titled release in 2006, which got rave reviews and has sold in excess of half a million albums so far. I haven’t got my hands on the new album yet; but if it’s even close to be of the same quality as their last release, then we’re in for a treat.

The new album consists of 11 songs that are both a tribute to and inspired by Rodrigo & Gabriela’s favourite bands & musicians.

Track Listing:

  1. Hanuman – inspired by Carlos Santana
  2. Buster Voodoo – inspired by Jimi Hendrix
  3. Triveni – inspired by Israeli Oud three-piece Le Trio Joubran
  4. Logos – inspired by jazz-rock master Al Di Meola
  5. Santo Domingo – inspired by jazz pianist and composer Michel Camilo
  6. Master Maqui – inspired by Spanish guitar legend Paco De Lucia
  7. Savitri – inspired by John McLaughlin and Zakir Hussian’s ground breaking 1970’s world fusion ensemble Shakti
  8. Hora Zero – inspired by Argentine tango composer and bandoneon virtuoso Astor Piazzola
  9. Chac Mool – inspired by Jorge Reyes, the Mexican composer who combined traditional Mexican instrumentation with new technology. Reyes died in February 2009.
  10. Atman – inspired by Dimebag Darrell, never to be forgotten lead guitarist in Pantera and Damageplan, who was tragically murdered onstage in 2004.

11:11 – inspired by Pink Floyd.
