“Echoes” Rodrigo y Gabriela

“Echoes” by Rodrigo y Gabriela is Northern Transmissions’ ‘Song of the Day,’ the track is off the duo’s forthcoming release METTAVOLUTION, out April 26th via ATO Records.

METTAVOLUTION is Rodrigo y Gabriela’s first album in five years. The album embraces the duo’s passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species, all expressed through the medium of two acoustic guitars. Mettavolution? “Metta” is a Sanskrit word for the meditative condition that produces compassion and benevolence. It is a “practical state of mind” as well, according to Gabriela, “something you practice like an instrument to become a better citizen, in a more evolved place.” Conceived and composed in their studio in Ixtapa on the Mexican Pacific Coast, the music of METTAVOLUTION was road-tested around the world on tour in 2017 and 2018 before being recorded late last year in Los Angeles with multiple GRAMMY-winning producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, A Perfect Circle, Band of Horses) behind the board.
