Of Tunisian and Algerian origin, and having lived in Tunisia, he is naturally fascinated by world music and what it conveys. His language is based on sources as varied as those of India, Central Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean basin, and he develops a personal approach guided by his memories and emotions. An Australian immigrant, Will Guthrie has since settled in France. He has engraved his mark among the most singular drummers and/or percussionists who hammer the sound space of experimental music around the globe.
