One of South Africa's premier flautists, Wouter Kellerman, will be performing in several Australian cities in August. Kellerman performed at the 2010 FIFA World Cup Closing Ceremony, which had a global television audience of 700 million people.
Earlier this year he won the 2011 South African Music Award, the South African equivalent of the Grammy, for Best Instrumental Album for 'Two Voices'. He was also an award winner in 2010, for a recording of his live performance, the Best Jazz/Instrumental/Popular Classical DVD category.
Kellerman will launch 'Two Voices' in Australia during this tour and will join forces with Senegalese singer and percussionist Lamine Sonko, guitarist Ben Hauptmann and South African bassist Phresh Makhene.
The soundtrack of the film 'Eye of the Leopard', which won an Emmy Award, includes Kellerman's flute-playing.
After playing with several South African orchestras, Kellerman focused on fusing classical and contemporary sounds that would enable him to bring his music to a global audience.
