In 2013, Jim became intrigued with the vast richness of diversity existing among Latin American cultures and the unity that is present among them. His investigation of folkloric rhythms and stylistic variances of flute playing in Latin-based genres ignited a burning passion to embark on a musical project that would (1) protray the beauty, diversity, and unity of Latin American cultures; (2) display the integration of Latin cultures with other cultrual regions (i.e. U.S.A., Middle East, Ireland, West Africa), and; (3) expand the repertoire of flute music to provide opportunity for Classical flutists to learn and appreciate flute music in ehtno-musical contexts. To make this project a reality, Jim Walker teamed up with Puerto Rican composer/producer/flutist, Jose Valentino, to create 15 exciting cross-cultural compositions that encompass a musical celebration of 20+ cultures from around the world supplemented with the technical demand of Classical music, rhythmic prowess of Afro-Latin American drumming, improvisational spirit of Jazz music, tinges of Middle Eastern, Irish, and Chinese msuical phrasings, and the enthusiasm of two generations colliding as one spirit! Thus, the project was completed in 2016 and appropriately entitled: “We Are One: An Exploration of Latin American Cultures.”
