Their film work includes the soundtracks to ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ and ‘Puss In Boots’, and they have collaborated onstage and on record with artists as diverse as Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Al Di Meola, Zack De La Rocha (Rage Against The Machine) and Anoushka Shankar. In another 2010 Highlight Rodrigo y Gabriela played at The White House in Washington for President Obama.
From humble buskers on Grafton Street, endless touring and great word-of-mouth buzz carried the band forward. International success followed with their 2006 album, which spawned the hits ‘Tamacun’, ‘Diablo Rojo’ and their ‘Stairway To Heaven’ cover.
The next album“11:11” followed. The band went to Cuba in 2012 to record with local musicians for “Area 52”. The band’s last studio album was 2014’s “9 Dead Alive”.
Rodrigo y Gabriela performance at Sligo Live comes at the end of their biggest ever world tour covering 25 countries.
