Rodrigo y Gabriela Debut New Amazon Original, “Gamma State”

rodrigo y gamma

Amazon Music debuted a brand new Amazon Original from Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. Entitled “Gamma State”and taken from the sessions for the band’s last album, Mettavolution, the track is an intense and exhilarating guitar-centric sprint and can only be heard on Amazon Music. We’re debuting the track as a part of La Guitarra, Amazon Music’s new, global playlist spotlighting the best in Latin guitar.

“The first sketches of this song started a couple of years ago, when we started writing for the new album. We road-tested it on tour in Australia last year and it went down well with our fans there. However, as we zoomed in on recording Mettavolutionwith Dave Sardy in Los Angeles, it became apparent that it didn’t quite sit with the rest of the songs on the record,” said Rodrigo Sanchez. “So we are very happy that ‘Gamma State’ is now finally coming out into the world.”

Listen to “Gamma State (Amazon Original)” by Rodrigo y Gabriela here:


Over the last 20 years, Rodrigo y Gabriela have defined and redefined instrumental guitar rock, remaining one of the most internationally recognized and revolutionary acts performing in the genre. Five years since their last album, the group returned this year with their most ambitious album yet, Mettavolution. Recorded in Los Angeles with noted producer Dave Sardy — best-known for his work with Oasis, LCD Soundsystem and Fall Out Boy — the new album brought together the group’s passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species. A long list of new material was distilled down to six new Rodrigo y Gabriela compositions and one audacious, jaw-dropping cover version. The album was released earlier this year, and Rodrigo y Gabriela are currently out on tour supporting the album. Full tour dates below.
