About this show

L. Shankar (aka L. Shenkar) is a virtuoso violinist and vocalist renowned for his deeply soulful performances of Indian classical music. He introduced a new instrument, a 10-string double violin capable of covering the whole range of the orchestra's string section from violin to double bass. In this rare New York appearance, he will be accompanied by tabla maestro Abhijit Banerjee and percussionist Chris Garcia, who will play the South Indian ghatam (clay pot) and kanjira (frame drum).
