Xylouris White to return to Melbourne

10 Nov 2016

Xylouris White to return to Melbourne Image

By Elliana Saltalamacchia

Xylouris White will play at the Melbourne Recital Centre this December after its hit Australian debut last summer at the Sydney Festival and Hobart’s MONA FOMA Festival.

The musical duo, made up of Dirty Three drummer Jim White and Cretan lute player George Xylouris, has combined the Greek lute with Australian post-rock.

White is described as a powerful and original player who has become one of the most recognisable drummers of today.

Xylouris is Crete’s most loved and inventive lutenist, having taken the lute from its mainly rhythmic role to a melodic one.

Being superior in their respective fields, they have combined their very different traditions to create a new kind of universal music.

Xylouris and White met on the Melbourne music scene when Xylouris was living in Australia in the early 90s.

Through a series of live performances and recording sessions in Greece, Australia and New York, the duo created their new sound.

Their debut album Goats went to number one on the Billboard World Music charts.   

Xylouris and White will perform on Saturday, December 17 at Elisabeth Murdoch Hall with special guests Tiny Ruins. For more information and to book tickets visit melbournerecital.com.au
