Zakir Hussain and Masters of Percussion

March 31, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Since 1996, Zakir Hussain has served as curator, conductor, and producer to bring the very cream of Indian music and world percussion to tour America and Europe with his series, Zakir Hussain and Masters of Percussion.

Growing out of his renowned international tabla duet tours with his father, the legendary Ustad Allarakha, Masters of Percussion began as a platform for both popular and rarely heard rhythm traditions from India. While performing and collaborating in India for a few months every year, Zakir has sought and unearthed lesser-known folk and classical traditions which feed into the greater stream of Indian music, playing an educational role in affording them greater visibility, as well as introducing them to audiences in the West. Over time, the constantly changing ensemble has expanded to include great drummers and percussionists from many world traditions.

All of it creates a truly beautiful field from which he can bring Masters of Percussion to the West. This year will be no exception, presenting American audiences with extraordinary, exciting and spontaneous combinations of percussive as well as melodic performances.

The results are absolutely unforgettable. Critics and audiences agree — Masters of Percussion really delivers.
