BIO:

Wind & Fire features Mark Holland on Native American & world flutes with world percussionist N. Scott Robinson. Together their masterful concert performances have astounded audiences across the USA. Both skilled musicians and effective teachers, they tour as a unique duo of world flutes and world percussion giving concerts and special workshops on world flutes & world percussion. Their work has been featured on the Public Radio International show Echoes and its live Living Room Concerts, hosted by John Diliberto. Instruments used by Mark Holland: Native American flutes, Andean quena, Indian bansuri, silver concert flute, Middle Eastern flutes, Chinese dizi, animal bone and horn flutes. Instruments used by N. Scott Robinson: Brazilian berimbau, Central & South African kalimba & mbira, West African harps, Arab riq and frame drums, Indian tabla, Nigerian udu, Tuvan throat singing & Australian didjeridu. Mark Holland is considered by many to be one of the leading authorities on the Native American and world flutes performing and recording today. Leader and founder of the ensemble Autumn’s Child, Mark Holland has been called, “the Jimi Hendrix of the Native American Flute.” His unique approach and usage of the flute along with his technical skills brings about such comparisons. Through his various ensembles such as Autumn’s Child, Wind & Fire, and Reflections, Holland showcases the versatility of the Native American & world flutes, creating a new acoustic instrumental fusion; an eclectic sound that is truly one of a kind. Mark Holland started Autumn’s Child in 1995 and began his publishing and record label, Cedar ‘n’ Sage Music in 1997. He has recorded 24 CDs of his own music to date. Holland has a B.A. in Music from the University of Missouri. World percussionist extraordinaire N. Scott Robinson, Ph.D., brings an enormous breadth of diverse experience in ethnic percussion traditions to the stage and the classroom. Currently teaching world musics and popular music at San Diego Mesa College in CA, he has performed with a long list of instrumentalists, composers, vocal artists and ensembles, including Benny Carter Big Band, The Cleveland Orchestra, Glen Velez, Marilyn Horne, Paul Winter Consort, John Cage, George Crumb, Annea Lockwood, Howard Levy, Malcolm Dalglish, Autumn's Child, Gerald Alston, and Jeanie Bryson, among others.
