Video: XIXA – Shift and Shadow

XIXAInfluenced by the squalling desert rock of their hometown Tucson, Arizona, and Latin American rhythms that informed their cover band Chica Dust, Brian Lopez and Gabriel Sullivan — both members of Giant Sand — have begun exploring the roots of Peruvian cumbia music in earnest with XIXA.

Having just released the four-song Shift and Shadow EP, Lopez and Sullivan are joined by Jason Urman (keyboard), Geoffrey Hidalgo (bass), Efren Cruz Chavez (percussion) and Winston Watson (drums). The group will issue its debut LP, Bloodlines, in February 2016.
