L. Shankar, part of the legendary Shankar family of musicians from India, has recorded with the likes of Frank Zappa, Peter Gabriel, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Phil Collins and others. The violinist, vocalist, composer and producer has sold more than 10 million records in his career.

Six years ago, Shankar joined the classically-trained violinist, singer and songwriter Gingger to form “Shankar and Gingger.” The group also includes renowned Indian tabla player Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri, a winner of numerous awards in his native India, the United States and elsewhere. Accomplished Indian and world music drummer Sivamani rounds out the group.

Since forming, “Shankar and Gingger” have toured internationally and released a DVD that spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard charts in 2001.
