One of the foremost percussionists in the world today, Zakir Hussain takes the Indian tabla to an extraordinary level. He astonished audiences in 2009 and comes back by popular demand! Zakir Hussain is revered both in the field of percussion and in the music world at large as an international phenomenon.
A classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order, his consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as a national treasure in his own country, India, but gained him worldwide fame.
Joining him on stage will be Fazal Qureshi (tabla & kanjira), Rakesh Chaurasia (bansuri), T.H.V. Umashankar (ghatam), Dilshad Khan (sarang), Navin Sharma (dholak), Abbos Kosimov (doyra), and the Meitei Pung Cholom performer (dancing drummer of Manipur).
