Maestro A.R. Rahman & Virtuoso Dr. L. Subramaniam Celebrate Life with a Special Intergenerational Music Tribute

MUMBAI: Celebrated musicians A.R. Rahman and Dr. L. Subramaniam have joined hands to celebrate commonality and the gift of life virtually at the Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival. The composer and violinist have rendered a musical tribute to violin legend Prof. V Lakshminarayana. This collaboration is symbolic of the friendship between their families which goes back two generations. The tale goes that Rahman’s father, composer, arranger and musician RK Sekar, and Subramaniam’s father, Prof. V Lakshminarayana, used to live on the same street in Mylapore, Chennai. The prodigious musical folks have been in artistic and goodwill communion since.
