She led WorldColor in a three-year cultural exchange with the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. The project was the subject of a television documentary that aired in seventeen Asian countries.
Pamela performs original interpretations of world music and original meditative music co-written with bassist Rich Kurtz. Whitman uses electric guitar pedals, whistle tones and breath effects to create an angelic atmosphere. Her recordings are available on all digital media outlets. Her 2018 release with Rich Kurtz, “Ancient Vision” was composed specifically for meditation, yoga, massage and wellbeing.

Quotes

"For Pamela, music is a beautiful medium to reach God. She touches the human soul with her flute."

(New Generation Magazine, Nepal)

"Flutist Pamela Whitman is of that rare breed who can breathe life back into Bach, Debussy and Telemann, for those of us who can enjoy the great performances, but are left with polite acknowledgment for the vast majority of resurrected classical composition...Pamela's "Solo Flight" is an example of her ability to communicate formidable ideas."

(Music BIZ Magazine)

"Miss Whitman has found a way to consistently present new and unique musical visions, based on the sounds and styles of diverse and time honored indigenous cultures world wide."
