Xylaroo are Holly and Coco Chant - a sister duo act with a refreshing folk sound.
Having travelled the world in their youth, starting in Papua New Guinea and ending in London via Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Azerbaijan, Switzerland and Kent, they've got more air miles under their belts than all the members of The Traveling Wilburys put together.
Their shared experience of the world is vocalised in beautiful shimmering harmonies, with that special magic created when voices from the same family combine. Think First Aid Kit, The Staves, or Secret Sisters.
As well as extensive tours of Europe and the UK, they have headlined Latitude BBC Introducing stage and played main stage Camp Bestival.
