Guy Savio

Je suis né à Montbrison, dans la Loire (42), et j'ai passé toute ma jeunesse à Boen-sur-Lignon. Là, j'ai reçu une formation musicale précoce, j'ai commencé l’apprentissage du solfège et du violon dès l’âge de 6 ans, à l’école de musique. En fait, j'ai toujours fait de la musique, je m'étais déjà orienté vers les percussions. Ma mère possédait une imposante batterie de bassines à lessive, et j'improvisais alors librement avec ces nombreuses sonorités différentes. |Création du groupe de rock "Les Excommunicated Archbishops": reprises de morceaux rock et musique Hendrixienne. | Dans les années 70, je me produis avec des amis musiciens dans des animations de villages, festivités diverses, bals folks, jouant violon et percussions, avec une nette inclinaison pour la musique africaine et la World Music. | En 1976, je m’installe quelques temps à Chartres et deviens le batteur du groupe CAMIZOLE, très orienté vers le Free-Jazz et les Musiques Improvisées. | A l’issue de cette expérience troublante et profondément marquante, je choisis une orientation professionnelle dans le secteur social (Educateur spécialisé, institution et milieu ouvert). | Dans ce cadre professionnel, je me forme parallèlement à la pratique de la musicothérapie

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
