ΞΥΛΟΥΡΗΣ / WHITE (GR/US)
Xylouris White brings together two masters of contemporary music: Jim White, a founder of the internationally acclaimed trio Dirty Three and Giorgos Xylouris (Psaragiorgis) the master lutenist who has been described as ‘the future of Cretan music’. Together XYLOURIS WHITE have created a new and compelling blend of melody and rhythm. Even to watch them absorbed in their music is an exhilarating experience. Jim and Psaragiorgis first played together in Melbourne. Since then they have been on a wonderful journey across three continents. Although these new experiences have added many riches neither has lost touch with the best of their diverse traditions. The first album of XYLOURIS WHITE will be released this fall.
