One of the most highly respected flutists in the world, Ron Korb has travelled around the globe for years collecting and studying indigenous flutes. Reflecting jazz, Chinese, Celtic, and Latin influences, his music embodies the diverse cultures, traditions and experiences of his travels. Ron has composed gold and double platinum selling songs for major Asian artists. Ron Korb mesmerizes his audiences with dynamic performances of beautiful original music and interesting arrangements. His work is accessible but also introduces new sounds and instruments to delighted audiences.
Lynn Thompson was introduced to Ron through her brother Jamie Thompson of Toronto, who is a flutist of reknown as well. And so unfolded the opportunity to record this conversation by phone in November, 2007.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
