Great combination of Jazz & Indian Music

Kabir Centre for Arts & Culture (www.centrekabir.com), a Not-for-Profit organization, devoted to promoting South Asian arts and culture, is proud to bring a unique event to audiences in Toronto. The aim of Kabir Centre is to promote harmony and mutual respect among Canadians of South Asian origin and in this process establish a bridge with the mainstream Canadian society.

Global Fusion is a concept created by the wizard of violin Dr. L.Subramaniam to promote cross-cultural collaboration between artists of different musical traditions, such as African, Chinese, Norwegian or Japanese musical traditions. Dr. Subramaniam is the pioneer of fusion in India and he began collaborations with global musicians in 1973, while he was still a student in the California Institute of Arts. Since that time, he has performed and recorded with artists around the world from a number of musical backgrounds and genres, including Yehudi Menuhin, Stephane Grappelli, Jean-Pierre Rampal, George Harrison, Stevie Wonder, Ernie Watts and Ravi Coltrane to name just a few. To present this genre of music and at the same time honour the memory of his father and music Guru V. Lakshminarayana, Mr. Subramaniam established in India in 1992, the LAKSHMINARAYANA GLOBAL MUSIC FESTIVAL (LGMF). The festival presents an extravaganza of fusion music every year across several cities. Till date, the Global Fusion music has been presented under the title of LGMF in 55 cities across 22 countries.

Kabir Centre is proud to bring LGMF to Toronto this year for a concert with nine musicians on stage including Dr. L.Subramaniam, the violin maestro and India’s famous singer Kavita Krishnamurti, three times winner of India’s Bollywood Best Singer award. These two star musicians will be joined on stage by the jazz legend and twice Grammy winner Ernie Watts playing the saxophone and six other talented artists playing the piano, drums, percussion, and violin and performing famous songs.

The concert is entitled, BEST OF INDIA, BEST OF JAZZ.
