Xylouris White (the rarefied duo of Dirty Three drummer Jim White and Cretan lute player George Xylouris) return to Australia this summer for headline shows in Sydney & Melbourne and festival appearances at Woodford and Womadelaide.
The tour follows the release of Black Peak the second long playing offering from Xylouris White and a dynamic follow up to their 2014 debut and Billboard World Music #1 album, Goats.
“This is Cretan folk music played with a rock’n’roll intensity that is truly immersive.” Uncut – 8/10
“These are haunted folk rituals feeling around deep inside the human psyche, grasping for rarely reached zones and nostalgia for submerged memories” The Quietus
“Astounding stuff” Songlines
One of Crete’s best-loved artists, Xylouris is a scion of Greek musical royalty, a family from a mountain village near the Cave of Zeus, while Jim White has commanded international attention for more than two decades as part of Dirty Three. Now New York-based, he also formed post-punk band Venom P Stinger and has worked with artists such as Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, PJ Harvey, Nina Nastasia, Cat Power and Smog. Together they perform a mosaic of musics that incorporates free jazz, post-punk, world and ethnic musics; together and individually they are unique.
