WATCH: Rodrigo Y Gabriela – ‘The Soundmaker’
The track encompasses the pair’s trademark rhythmic acoustic guitar sound while maintaining their genre-defying tradition. The Soundmaker pays homage to Spanish guitarist and luthier Antonio de Torres Jurado, who changed the way the guitar was produced in the 1800s. Each track on 9 Dead Alive serves as a tribute to an individual who is no longer with us, but whose actions and words still resonate today.
9 Dead Alive, the follow-up to 2009’s acclaimed 11:11, is set for release in Australia on Friday, 25th April, with The Soundmaker available as an instant download when you preorder the album on iTunes.
