Ulla and flute and breath and music are all one and we, too,
are woven into that oneness.
I Offer My Heart…
As I have had such great fortune to have learnt from amazing and unforgettable people internationally, it is my honor now in turn to share from my education, my experiences, my life and my heart.
Who am I?
I am just like you, I have my dreams just like you. Many of them achieved, and many in manifestation. But always continuing to explore, expand, learn, grow, go deeper. It is my passion to share all that I have learnt, helping you on your path, bringing clarity to your dreams and develop your tools to manifest your heart’s desire.
I am a flutist originally from Finland, already living many years abroad, first in New York and now in Peru. I have a doctoral degree from The Juilliard School , where I studied with the great Julius Baker. I graduated from Sibelius Academy in Finland and played a few years in the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra. I have had the honor to play with many famous artists, and to play in many of the world’s most famous concert halls in the United States, Finland, Canada, Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Mongolia, France, Italy, Indonesia, Peru…
I have dedicated much of my time to play contemporary music. Always exploring new way of expression using the voice, breathe and movement. In New York I enjoyed creating dozens of workshops and interactive and multicultural concerts for kids through Lincoln Center and Midori & Friends Foundation in New York, and Euro Kids Festival in Washington DC.
We Are Music
Music is my ticket to the world, connecting me with countries, cultures, traditions and most importantly to “my people,” who are everywhere. Music has also been the key to my human development and to my inner path. To be a complete artist – or a human being – we are called to continue to honor and to fulfill our true genius and soul in all aspects of our lives, because in the end music is a vibrational reflection of life itself. And we are all music.
And Why Do I Live in Cusco?
From my teens I had the dream to go to Machu Picchu, but when I first came to Peru in 2010, I realized that it wasn’t only the beautiful sanctuary of Machu Picchu that was calling me. I felt that the inexplicable spirit of the Andes in general – its people, music, food, stories, mysticism – was the magnet that was calling my name.
From that very first time in Cusco everything started to magically flow with profound connections in the heart space. I have travelled in many countries, but in Peru I feel at home, very connected with the Andes, confortable being so close to heavens, and on the other hand very connected with the ocean and the silence between the waves.
I Share With All My Heart
