Zakir Hussain's Masters of Percussion

Two-time GRAMMY-winning tabla virtuoso and composer Zakir Hussain, widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest percussionists, returns with his latest, handpicked ensemble of master musicians and dancers.

Throughout his career, Zakir Hussain has elevated the status of the tabla throughout India and around the globe. The London Telegraph classifies him as “the presiding genius and global ambassador for North Indian classical music.” He is the recipient of many honors, including “Best Percussionist” in the Downbeat Critics’ Poll and multiple citations in best-of lists in Modern Drummer and Drum! magazines. A master improviser, he is known not only for his peerless take on India’s classical music, but also for his forays into jazz, fusion, film scores, and other genres.

For his 2019 Masters of Percussion tour, Hussain will be joined by an astonishing group of fellow percussionists: innovative sitarist and composer Niladri Kumar; in-demand jazz drummer Eric Harland, known for collaborations with everyone from Wynton Marsalis and Wayne Shorter to Mariah Carey and John Mayer; and Mattannur Sankarankutty Marar & Group:  The Drummers of Kerala, an expert ensemble of musicians from the Southwestern coast of India.

For this performance, Hussain and his guests will perform both together and separately.
