Rodrigo Y Gabriela - Area 52

A mellow mele
RODRIGO-Y-GABRIELA-Area-52.jpg
Area 52 is a revisiting and reimagining of the duo’s previous output, with new arrangements undertaken with the help of C.U.B.A, an ensemble of hand picked Cuban instrumentalists. With clean production and virtuoisitic precision, imagine a Latin, metal, jazz inspired mellow mele, on acoustic instruments. The title acknowledging C.U.B.A’s “alien” approach to their own, perhaps an indicator of what to expect for those already familiar with the pair. An unrelenting tirade with few moments to pause and catch ones breath, the arsenal of musicians, instruments and riffs enough to keep Mom and Dad on their toes and feet tapping.
