Today on the World Cafe, it’s the incredible dual guitars of Rodrigo Y Gabriela. Their new album, titled Mettavolution, draws on the Sanskrit word for compassion, and that is the message behind their new 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, along with a live performance, on the next World Cafe.
World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App from the App Store & Google Play.
