Born and raised in the Honey Island Swamp of Louisiana, Savej, pronounced [savage] – has always been fascinated by the mysteries of the cosmos and the wisdom held by ancient cultures. Combining world instruments, the sounds of nature, and shamanic ceremonial influences with hip-hop influenced tribal rhythms and an 808 feel, his music weaves together modern and ancient cultures into one universal, organic sound.
"In a bid to show just how deeply music is connected to the earth, New Orleans producer Savej (pronounced “savage”) tuned his flutes to the frequency of 432hz, which is often hailed as a “healing” tuning system similar to the planet’s rotation. While that claim might have its doubters, Savej’s upcoming album Solstice does feature three tracks that are four minutes and 32 seconds in length each and certainly brings together calming and excitable electronic music that infuses wind instruments, global percussive elements and sitar."-- Rolling Stone India
