Flutist Elsa Nilsson New CD: "Salt Wind" March 3 - Release Date ---- Plus New Video Premiere February 18
(Published: February 06, 2017)

February 18, 2017 - New Video

"Someone for Something" off of Elsa Nilsson's new album "Salt Wind" is a composition depicting the sensation of New York City's ability to derail thoughts. A recurring idea is interspersed between a long flowing melody that continually interrupts itself.

Flutist and composer Elsa Nilsson's new album "Salt Wind" is a deeply personal expression with influences from every aspect of her colorful life. Born in Gothenburg, Sweden and raised by a California hippie, Nilsson had her feet planted in two very different cultures, leading her to seek commonalities wherever she can find them. She believes the true beauty of music is its ability to create common ground, and she weaves all kinds of folk music (including jazz) to find a deeper understanding between people and cultures. This cross-cultural philosophy is evident in her compositional style, subtly drawing from personal and universal elements to create a sound that is distinctly her own yet approachable from many angles.
