Rodrigo y Gabriela: Reinventing the Steel
GW How did you come up with the album’s title?
RODRIGO The name of the album is based on the fact that there are 11 tracks, inspired by 11 different artists.
GW But also, the title track is in a meter of 11/8.
GABRIELA Rod’s brother is the piano player on the track, and we asked him to set up a rhythm that was in some form of 11 beats.
RODRIGO We count the beats as three, three, three, two [three beats followed by three beats followed by three beats followed by two beats]. Normally when we are playing, the audience claps along, but they get into trouble with that one!
GW They will either have to know how to count it or be really drunk.
GABRIELA It’s more likely that they’ll be really drunk. [laughs]
