Watch a collaboration between Dirty Three’s Jim White and lute player George Xylouris

Xylouris White is the collaboration between Greek lute player George Xylouris and Dirty Three percussionist Jim White.

Their debut album Goats, which was incidentally produced by Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, appeared earlier this fall on the esteemed Other Music Recording Co. imprint and has been rapturously received. A hero in his native Crete, Xylouris takes the folk music that pushed him into the spotlight and juxtaposes it with White’s unmistakable percussive twists and turns.

This particular video, for the album highlight ‘Chicken Song’, was put together by director Jem Cohen to celebrate the fact that the duo are currently traipsing throughout the world on tour. Take a look at the dates below.
