SOUTH African flute player Wouter Kellerman won the Grammy for best new age album on Sunday night.

The musician recorded the winning album Winds of Samsara with Indian composer Ricky Kej. It was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

Speaking to Eye Witness News, Kellerman said: “It will just help us to be given more opportunity to do what I love.

“The message is of peace, love and tolerance about Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi; that’s the message we were trying to communicate with this album.”

Winds of Samsara reached number one on the American New Age Album Billboard Charts in July last year.
