Jérémy Marais, born and raised in the French Alps, started to study saxophone as a kid and very soon developed a strong interest in improvised music. He has been living and studying traditional music in various parts of the world: West Africa, Spain, India, Turkey, and Israel. As a multi-instrumentalist, Jérémy, in addition to alto and baritone sax, performs with clarinet, frame drum, kalimba, Shruti box and various little percussions. Jérémy performed with international bands touring internationally for many years. During the last 10 years through various significant spiritual experiences, Jérémy discovered the power music has to affect reality, to help shift, heal, let go, release, journey and grow. He is now using his musical skills toward this goal doing regular “Sound Healing Journeys” with the various project: “The Murmurations Duo”, Laura Inserra and “ Sonic Shamanic”. He offers one on one healing sessions using voice, music, energy healing and somatic approach. Jérémy also offers weekly workshops on “Music Sound and Voice Improvisation”.
