In the world of Indian classical music, there is no artist quite like Zakir Hussain. The GRAMMY®-winning tabla maestro is celebrated not only as an innovative drummer, but as a powerful force in expanding Indian music around the globe. He returns to NJPAC by popular demand with his Masters of Percussion program — a long-running, ever-evolving collaboration of the best drummers on the planet. They weave together their distinctive instruments, musical traditions and percussive stylings into a multicultural masterpiece. You’ll marvel at the experience.

“Zakir Hussain, the peerless North Indian tabla player, favors an impish strain of virtuosity. He’s a fearsome technician but also a whimsical inventor, devoted to exuberant play.”
