“Ferran Savall was born in Basel in 1979, the son of Montserrat Figueras and Jordi Savall. From earliest childhood his everyday life at home was permeated by the atmosphere of musical study, rehearsals and concerts with members of his family. He started his musical training at the age of seven.
At the age of 15 he began to study guitar at the Escola Luthier under Xavier Coll. At the same time, he studied performance using early instruments and the practice of bass continuo in private classes with Rolf Lislevand, under whom he continues to study to the present day. Since 2000 he has worked on modern song, continuing his studies under Dolors Aldea and Petter Johansen.
Ferran Savall is a self-taught musician in search of a natural voice. His essential quality is a highly spontaneous approach to singing, his music springing from the individual moment and its intrinsic emotion, from his personality and the resources at his disposal at any particular moment.
He takes his inspiration from a variety of musical styles such as soul, black music and world music, especially from the Eastern Mediterranean and India, as well as early and contemporary music. …”
