At the helm of his swinging Kontraband is Russian-born violist-composer Lev “Ljova” Zhurbin who employs skills honed alongside Yo-Yo Ma, the Kronos Quartet and Osvaldo Golijov in his arrangements and original compositions, evoking rustic dances and cinematic vistas by turns. Their music is smartly original, steeped in tradition while moving those traditions forward.
LJOVA AND THE KONTRABAND is: Ljova, viola; Inna Barmash, vocal; Patrick Farrell, accordion; Mike Savino, bass; Mathias Kunzli, percussion.
Tickets: $25 for the first three rows, $20, $17 for members of Shorefront Y, seniors, and students.
