Violinist Vijay Gupta brings music, healing to LA’s Skid Row

Vijay Gupta is a Juilliard-trained violinist who’s been using music as a way to connect with L.A.’s homeless and incarcerated and promote healing. A movement that began with one Skid Row occupant has now evolved into a group of 80 musicians who perform in shelters, jails and treatment facilities. Jeffrey Brown talks to Gupta about abuse, dysfunction and how art became his “lifeline.”
