L. Vaidyanathan

A composer of scores for over 150 films

All three brothers were musically trained by their father V. Lakshminarayana.

Their Indian family was a great one, of all music lovers and players

L. Subramaniam


A master musician as well as having a degree as a general practitioner in medicine.

"I find nothing more inspiring than the music making of my very great colleague Subramaniam. Each time I listen to him, I am carried away in wonderment.”

Yehudi Menuhin

L. Shankar / Shenkar

L. Shankar plays the 10 string stereophonic double violin
which covers all the orchestral range
— double bass, viola, cello and violin

Between the days of a Jack London Birdhouse and another (you'll see), I came upon a cache of my world music LPs and brought them back into the fold, including L. Shankar and his older brothers.
