Lars Nilsson
Nueva Vermland, a dream:

Lars Nilsson, the founder of Nueva Vermland, was born in Karlskoga, a town in the middle of the large forests of the province of Värmland, Sweden, where he began to cultivate his love for music, as well as for nature. At the age of 17, he left his home town to be able to go on studying the secrets of the flute playing. After 6 years of studying and working in different European countries he moved to the city of Mendoza in Argentina.

While his professional life as an orchestra musician and flute teacher compelled him to remain mainly in the urban centers, he maintained always alive the dream of returning to the nature.

Fortunately, his frequent touring with Markama (the folkloric music group), permitted him to discover and to enjoy beautiful landscapes, and in one of these trips he knew the wild beauty of the mountains of Córdoba, Argentina. He decided, then, to buy some acres there, not only to have a place fitted for spiritual withdrawal for himself and his family, but also to be able to share with his pupils the wonderful contact with the nature.

Lars Nilsson was formed as a flutist in the Music School of his hometown, Karlskoga, Sweden, and in the Real Music Academy of Stockholm. He also studied in Berlin with Aurélè Nicolet thanks to a scholarship from the German Federal Government and with Marcel Moyse in Switzerland and France.

In 1961 he became a member of the National Radio Orchestra of Norway. Since 1966 he has been teaching flute at the National University of Cuyo, in Mendoza, Argentina. He was also for many years the first flute for the Orchestra of that University. He has made frequent tours as a soloist and is often invited to give classes in South America, North America and in the Scandinavian countries.

Beside his activity as a classic musician he has been devoted to the diffusion of Latin American music, he has participated in several tours and recordings in different continents as a member of the Folkloric Group Markama.
