METTAVOLUTION marks the most ambitious music of Rodrigo y Gabriela's remarkable two-decade career and was one of NPR's top 6 albums of the week upon release. Three years in the making, the LP embraces the duo's passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species, all expressed through the medium of two acoustic guitars.
METTAVOLUTION gathers six white-hot new Rodrigo y Gabriela compositions - much of which acknowledge the duo's thrash-metal roots back in Mexico City - as well as an inspired, side-long cover of Pink Floyd's sprawling "Echoes" - originally found on 1971's MEDDLE - audaciously re-imagined for two acoustic guitars. Special Guest Ida Mae will open the show.
