Today on the World Cafe, it’s the incredible dual guitars of Rodrigo Y Gabriela. Their 2019 album, titled Mettavolution, draws on the Sanskrit word for compassion, and that is the message behind their latest songs. But how do you convey that emotion as an instrumental group, without words? Rod and Gab join host Stephen Kallao to explain, and we’ll also find out why they chose to cover a legendary Pink Floyd track. That conversation coming up, on this encore edition of the World Cafe.
