Growing up in Medellin, Colombia, this master musician and instrument maker plays the Andean flute and has dedicated his life to the melody-led beauty of traditional Andean music. On arriving in England, Velasierra studied at London Guildhall University and started to explore Jazz and the music of Zimbabwe and West Africa. As an accomplished and impressive musician he plays original compositions and exquisite Andean rhythms incorporating contemporary Jazz and African melodies and harmonies. "Velasierra's music is a facsinating mixture of latin-American melodies, contemporary harmony and Afro-Andean rhythms, underlined by clear concepts of Jazz imrovisation". -Joey Julian-
