Brian Lopez and Gabriel Sullivan have been at the forefront of the Tucson scene for a number of years - as solo artists, sidemen, producers and members of Howe Gelb's Giant Sand.

Four years ago, inspired by Peruvian Cumbia, Brian and Gabriel dedicated themselves to the exploration of the hard edge, guitar-driven trippy cumbia known as Chicha. After a few years of playing as Chicha Dust - and becoming one of Tucson's most popular band - the group renamed itself XIXA and started writing all new material, mixing their rocking past and their passion for psychedelic cumbia - creating a sort of desert rock with a Latin edge and a strong taste for hallucinogenic experimentation. Barbes Records released their debut album, Bloodlines, back in February and. They have just come back from their first European tour
