One of the most iconic voices in Australian music, multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd eases hypnotic indigenous ceremonial rhythms effortlessly into tender folk songs. Gritty guitar blues sit perfectly alongside entrancing yidaki (a form of didgeridoo) passages. Surfer, animal rights activist and nature conservationist, Xavier is an artist of both imagination and conscience. Fans around the globe strongly connect to his themes of love, respect and peace delivered with raw power, spirituality, breath-taking pictures and a masterfully woven emotional touch. With his seven albums he has hit the top 20 of the ARIA charts (the official record of highest selling singles and albums in the Australia music industry) while touring from Japan to Hawaii and throughout the United States.
