Javier Girotto

Javier Edgardo Girotto plays soprano, baritone saxophone, flute, bass clarinet, quenas, sicus. He was born in Cordoba, Argentina and took an interest in music thanks to his grandfather A.L.Caroli, band director, first playing snare drum, then clarinet in E flat in the Infanto Juvenil de Cordoba and in the band of Villa del Rosario, then he changed to clarinet in B flat.
