Ambassador to humanity

Finland-born concert artist and entertainer Ulla Suokko is a virtuoso flutist, an expressive storyteller in many languages, enjoying a versatile international career sharing the magic of music, poetry and stories throughout the world.

A consummate performer, this cosmopolitan bard is committed to making a difference in the world through music and musical stories – always with romantic charm, joyous passion and a delightful sense of humor. Whether by herself in her one-woman act, or when sharing the stage with other international world class musicians, Ulla’s performance is an intimate, inspiring, uplifting and thought provoking adventure that is not to be missed.

Her flute recital was not a recital in the traditional sense: it was a theatrical presentation, a scientific study, an essay of meditation, a frolic, a history lesson, an exploration of the unexplored, and a reinventing of not just what the flute family can do, but how the heart, mind, body and soul can communicate through its seductive overtones…

Music as a Healer…

An advocate of the healing power of music, Dr. Suokko has always brought music, stories and poetry to hospitals, nursing homes, children’s advocacy centers, prisons and into the homes of hospice-care patients. Complementing her musical work, she leads workshops on healing, personal transformation, relaxation techniques, listening, communicating, and improvisation. Her improvised music, both live and recorded, is an invocation for inner truth, peace, balance, harmony and love.

Always a student, Dr. Suokko keeps expanding her knowledge and experience of the healing arts, exploring with equal thirst the ancient traditions of the world and the contemporary research of vibrational and energy medicine. Her interests range from shamanism to quantum physics, reaching from the smallest atom to the distant galaxies of the universe.
