Lewis Kahn adopted the buddhist name "Voirabh (o Voirob) Lewis Kahn" during his brief association with the controversial cult movement of Sri Chinmoy. He later distanced himself from the secular movement and returned as "Lewis C. Kahn" whilst still professing his roots belief of Buddhism.
Lewis Kahn has been working in New York as a trombonist and violinist since the late 60s. He studied at the Eastman and Juilliard Schools of Music and was a member of Tito Puente’s last ensemble.
This low-key, affable trombonist-violinist has played with some of the most recognized names in Salsa and Latin music, including Larry Harlow, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Willie Colón among several others.
