Wouter Kellerman - Love Language
Just as we learn to speak within our first years on earth, so we all learn to love. And that simple choice - to take as one's native tongue caring and compassion, not just for a partner or family member but for everyone around you - is the seed from which Love Language grew.
Love Language is the fourth release from internationally renowned South African flutist Wouter Kellerman, now an Australian resident. Just as he did with last year's Grammy Award-winning album Winds of Samsara, Kellerman has gathered scores of top musical collaborators from around the world to help give voice to Love Language. From Senegal and Spain, Cuba and India, Greece and the United States, Love Language encapsulates the myriad ways we connect on the topics of life and love - and the countless languages with which we speak of the universal connection that binds us to one another. The result: an unparalleled tincture of musical textures, influences, and, truly, love from all around the world.
"The theme of being loving joins us all together," says Kellerman, "and music bridges all cultural gaps, becoming a universal language that communicates across seemingly insurmountable barriers." Some people show love by giving presents or by complimenting someone, spending time or by touch, he continues. "My love language is music," he says with a smile.
