XIXA are psychedelic. XIXA are cumbia. But, most of all, XIXA are rock ‘n roll. Their music is rooted in a South American heritage, but is equally informed by their hometown of Tucson, Arizona’s vividlegendary music scene.

Their interpretation of chicha - Peruvian cumbia made popular in the Amazon and poor barrios of Lima during the 60’s and 70’s - surprisingly reveals a common thread within the music of Arizona’s desert: an obsession for hard-edge guitars and a strong taste for mixing rock and Latin flavours.

Learning and arranging as many classic chicha covers as possible, the band enjoyed immediate success in Tucson and further afield, becoming part of a scene that fosters the rediscovery of chicha across the US. Over time the band began writing more original music, infused with the sounds of chicha.

No longer a cover band, Chicha Dust was reborn earlier this year as XIXA.

Their musical backgrounds could not be more diverse.

The band’s artwork and videos are curated and produced by highly acclaimed Tucson visual artists. Their embrace of gothic and surreal imagery is a
perfect match for XIXA’s uniquely southwestern psychedelic sounds.
