About Wouter Kellerman: Born in South Africa, Kellerman started playing the flute at the age of ten, and in 1981 appeared as a soloist with the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra. He was the recipient of the Perrenoud Foundation Prize during the 1997 Vienna International Music Competition. His album TWO VOICES won the 2011 SAMA (South African Music Award, equivalent to the Grammy) for 'Best Instrumental Album', reinforcing his status as one of South Africa’s foremost musicians. The multi SAMA-winning flute wizard also performed at the 2010 FIFA World Cup Closing Ceremony to a global television audience of 700 million people. A true crossover artist, Kellerman thrives on experimenting musically with his flute, eclectic instrumentation and vocal sounds. Kellerman is the first musician in South Africa to reach #1 on the Billboard New Age Charts in the US. The album also reached #1 on the ZMR (Zone Music Reporter).
