World Music Series (play ball!)

The LA Philharmonic is promoting the World Music Series at the Walt Disney Hall., with performances by The Chieftains (this Thursday), Eva Ayllón, Asha Bhosle, and the Kronos Quartet (one of these things is not like the other ones, one of these things is not the same...) To be fair, the Kronos Quartet will be performing with Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq and performing other Icelandic music by Derek Charke, Sigur Rós, and Xploding Plastix.

As part of the promotion, the Phil is offering the opportunity to win tickets for the Eva Ayllón concert on March 7. She will perform "musica criolla," a combination of flamenco, African rhythms, and Spanish folk melodies that she has created. Click to win, as they say.
