Werner John is an inspired musical artist. His concerts, presentations and courses interweave the musical impulse with a deep regard for nature and the human spirit. Werner's abiding interests in both the Native American flute and the related European recorder give him an unusual perspective on bridging worldviews. His music is an example, as one ancient Ecuadorian tribe might put it, of the condor (symbolizing Indigenous wisdom) and the eagle (the dominant culture) flying together... important in healing our fractured world.
Werner John has created new North American Indian style flute designs which extend the expressive capabilities of this instrument. His flutes embody advanced musicality in tone, responsiveness and tuning yet are easy to learn and play.
In his presentations to schools and churches Werner blends live music with a deep honoring of nature and spirit. His music provides a fitting accompaniment to his message on overcoming deeply seated habits of separation between the tribes of humanity as well as between ourselves and nature.
