Xavier Rudd & the United Nations

Rock, Pop
Since the very beginning, Xavier Rudd's ability to connect with people has been his most powerful gift.

Now, fronting a band aptly named The United Nations, Xavier Rudd has assembled a lineup of musicians from around the world as a one-people musical force. Making their debut in 2015, Xavier Rudd And The United Nations finds the iconic Australian solo artist in full band mode for the first time in a long and successful career, and introduces new album "Nanna" to Xavier's diverse and acclaimed discography

His music combines elements of bluegrass, folk, alternative, reggae, electronica/dance, jazz and funk.
