The otherworldly musical duo of Greek singer and lute player George Xylouris and Australian drummer Jim White is an intercontinental match made in musical heaven! As a duo, White's wild n' fluid percussion enmeshes itself with Xylouris' inventive playing and resonant vocals to completely buck convention or trend - it's just a totally mind-opening experience from the opening cymbal crash on record or in person.  
Having just finished up gigs across Europe, Xylouris White are about to embark on a tour of the continental U.S.A. next week, before journeying back across the pond once more for an encore slew of European dates! XW in a live setting is a fully charged experience, making the recorded sounds of their excellent new long player, The Sisypheans, sound almost restrained by comparison, if that were actually possible (it's not, the record rips). Furiously expressive and vigorously energetic live or on wax, XW will be traversing throughout the world this year and next--don't miss!
