Music on Talk Shows for the week of October 16

While this week is darkened with reruns galore, there's one appearance that shines (make that burns), and

that is the Mexican flamenco-inspired guitar duo Rodrigo

Y Gabriela (tonight on The Late Late Show with

Craig Ferguson). While Rodrigo (Sanchez) and Gabriela (Quintero) met playing in heavy metal bands in Mexico

City, their ascension lies in Europe, where they travelled and found themselves busking on the streets of Dublin,

Ireland. There they become friends with Damien Rice,

leading to Rice inviting them to open for him. Their latest release (

Rodrigo Y Gabriela)

recently debuted at number one in Ireland, and is just now beginning to hit our fair shores.
