It’s hard to concentrate on expanding your horizons with an empty stomach. Xavier Rudd has released a new album called ‘Food In The Belly’ that’s sure to satisfy. This one man band has cooked up another feast of organic goodness … acoustic roots, reggae and soul made with wholesome, natural ingredients like hand drums, acoustic slide guitar, harmonica and yirdaki, the Australian aboriginal name for a didgeridoo. Watching Xavier Rudd perform is a study in the many different ways human beings communicate through music … with their breath, their hands and their feet. He takes the stage solo, surrounded by a battery of acoustic instruments that he uses to create different moods for his songs. Xavier’s compassion for the earth and the original peoples who live in harmony with it resonates throughout this great new album.
