In Brief

*1/2

RODRIGO Y GABRIELA
Rodrigo y Gabriela
ATO

This Dublin-based, Mexico-born guitar duo don't want to be called flamenco, so flamenco lite will have to do. Leeching all agony and macho from their virtuoso metal roots, their world-music variant has the approximate new-and-different factor of a well-appointed hotel room. Dave Matthews signed them only because George Winston is out of the label business.
