Rosalind Richards, composer and classically trained flutist, known for her popular New Age music, has composed a wonderful world music collection, her fourth to date, due in spring 2011. This new album is an exciting and unique mix of cultures interpreted with jazzy rhythms and soulful flute harmonies. At times the tracks are upbeat and energetic, while at other times they are longing and meditative. Her world music compositions are inspired by the classic sounds from such cultures as India, Ireland, Japan, Medieval Europe and Peru.
Rosalind has taught World Music classes at two San Diego universities for 10 years having earned a Master’s degree in Flute Performance and Music History. She is also a professional flutist and combines the love of performance and the love of historical and world cultural music in her compositions.
Rosalind has been composing and performing for 25 years. Some of her influences have been Herbie Mann and Paul Horn. Her career had an amazing start when her group Ginseng played concert venues with the Frank Zappa group Mothers of Invention. She often receives standing ovations from crowds for her flute performance.
