9 Dead Alive sees Rodrigo y Gabriela playing face to face, guitar versus guitar, bursting with melodic energy and rhythmic invention.
Each of the songs on the album is a personal celebration of individuals who have died, but through their deeds and words still resonate in the 21st century. Going as far back as Eleanor of Acquitaine (1122 - 1204) to Viktor Frankl (1905 - 1997), and including a tribute to one of Rodrigo y
Gabriela's enduring touchstones - animals and nature.
