Rodrigo y Gabriela: Hanuman

Mexican acoustic guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela have constantly found success within their paradoxical nature. Take, for instance, their initial leap into fame while living in Dublin despite speaking no English, or the fact that they are deeply inspired by heavy metal despite their exclusive use of nylon string guitars. The duo took to the TED stage this week and their performance was entirely mesmerizing. Until TED releases a video of the performance, here’s “Hanuman“—one of our favorites from the pair.
