Rodrigo y Gabriela

After venturing out to record an album with Cuban musicians, Mexico’s Rodrigo y Gabriela are back working as an acoustic guitar duo, pursuing their rock rather than Latin roots on this year’s “9 Dead Alive,” their first collection of new material in five years. Each selection was inspired by a different person. The shape-shifting “Misty Moses” is dedicated to Harriet Tubman and the gorgeous and haunting “Megalopolis” is a salute to poet Gabriela Mistral. As always, Rodrigo’s flashy leads and Gabriela’s rhythmic drive impress, but they are astounding live. Jon Bream
