Canadian born composer/performer/producer (Ashtar) Ron Allen creates music celebrating both Western and Eastern musical traditions. As a young jazz protege from the age of 17, he played saxophone with many mentors. Simultaneously, a longing for a deeper understanding led him to the Bansuri flute as he studied Hindustani classical music with G.S. Sachdev and others. This led to Persian, Arabic classical music as well as other world music alongside continued study of advanced Western theory with Ted Moses. His original music is heard in several film scores such as The Passion of the Christ by Mel Gibson and Free Willy 3, as well as over 50 CDs of his own for the Somerset, Reflections and RSM labels.
