Christian Urbita has studied violin making all across Europe. He finds inspiration in nature and tailors instruments according to the musician’s energy. He restored Amati, Stradivarius and Guarneri violins in the prestigious W.E. Hill & Sons workshop, and established the European association of luthiers and bow makers (AELA). As the president of the festival Musique sur Ciel, each year he brings together luthiers, bow makers, musicians and composers.
