Be there as Paris-based musician extraordinaire Renaud Garcia-Fons demonstrates his innovative approach to playing the double bass. Challenging conventional notions of what the instrument can and cannot do, his compositions contain an utterly new sound—an amalgam of double bass, cello, violin, guitar, lute, oud, and more—influenced by classical, jazz, flamenco, Persian, Indian, Mediterranean, and South American styles. At the Skirball, Garcia-Fons will perform with his brilliant new quartet, featuring David Venitucci on accordion, Kiko Ruiz on flamenco guitar, and Pascal Rollando on percussion.
