about

Produced by Ivan Duran

Composed and arranged by Samuel Matsinhe and Ivan Duran

It was almost lost in the Bermuda triangle between Montreal and Maputo and Belize, waiting through hurricanes and blizzards and clouds of dust. Magic happens anywhere you give it enough space. It’s only waiting till you beat it hard enough and the drum skin snaps and the guitar signals clip red and you push it further until one voice talks back. Then Xico-Xico wants to tell you something, slice your senses and leave you supercharged. It’s Pandora’s beat box, mid-Atlantic funk for your free flying soul.
