Carro (Kurt) Savoy, whose real name is Francisco Rodriguez, was born in 1948 in Andujar in Jaen province. He is one of the most peculiar Spanish artists, who triumphed on the international stage. His fans call him “El rey del silbido” – King of Whistling. 

He started his music career in 1959, playing in rock bands and participating in various medial programs. He became world famous for imitating the whistle of melodies from spaghetti westerns, i.e. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Many people, who are interested in Ennio Morricone’s music, are surprised by Curro’s popularity because they perceive him just as a peculiar whistler. It is worth mentioning that Curro imitates the great Alessandro Alessandroni (1925 – 2017), whose whistle can be heard in original soundtracks of Sergio Leone’s movies.

Savoy has a great musical talent and it a master of whistling. Because of that, the engaging and atmospheric compositions Morricone creates appear on music stages all over the world together with the King of Whistling…
