In his new show, Choufy celebrates Nativity with tracks gently selected in his collection of Xian records from around the globe, say Alleluia !

“Leave your preconceived notions about Christianity at the door and focus on the fact that Xian psych records were made to appeal specifically to non-believers. Xian psych musicians used their work to expose the hippie scene to what was thought of as mind expansion through God. In the process of doing so, these artists offered a fascinating glimpse at an eccentric way in which people of faith reconciled the cultural upheaval of the Vietnam era with great artistic vision.”
