Skirball's new concert series Journeys and Encounters brings together eclectic pairings from genre-bending musicians. Tonight's concert celebrates a South Indian musical icon: violinist, composer and conductor Dr. Lakshminarayana Subramanian (or Dr. L. for short). Billed as a pioneer of the "fusion between South Indian musican and Western classical, jazz, and rock," Subramanian is no stranger to collaboration; he's made sweet music with some of the industry's biggest legends, including Herbie Hancock, George Harrison, and Yehudi Menuhin, among others. Tonight, Subramaniam shares the Skirball stage with his eight piece band, an impressive outfit that includes virtuoso blues harmonica player Corky Siegel, violinist (and son) Ambi Subramaniam, keyboardist Chris Rhyne, guitarist Mark Sganga, bassist Jerry Watts, and drummer Joey Heredia. Don't miss it.
