Guzeppi Xuereb, better known as Ix-Xudi, for reasons that are as yet unkown, was one of the foremost exponents of għana spirtu pront or improvised, folk-singing. This village troubadour was a humorous character who drew large crowds whenever he sang in public, as his fame and wit went beyond the confines of his village and neighbourhood of Santu Rokku, Birkirkara. Along with his friend, Manwel Mercieca is-Semenza, Xudi was involved in the early recording sessions in Tunis between 1931 and 1932. It is documented that he performed on at least one occasion for the Maltese immigrant community residing in Tunis, which at the time was numerous. Xudi claimed 15 gramophone records to his name on Odeon and French Pathe record labels.
