Watch the new music video for “11:11”
Rodrigo y Gabriela’s new music video for “11:11” from Area 52 features the work of photorealistic artist Barry Jazz Finnegan. In the time-lapse video, Finnegan applies his talent to a photo of Rodrigo y Gabriela, meticulously re-creating the image on paper. It provides an apt analogy to the album Area 52, which pulls many parts together to form a cohesive whole.
