Zakir Hussain & Masters of Percussion

April 7

A national treasure in his native land, Zakir Hussain is among the most internationally successful musicians in the history of India. He has thrilled audiences throughout the world with his sensuous and compelling mastery of tabla, which the Washington Post calls “intoxicating in its intensity,” with a “virtuosity that is barely to be believed.” From meditative classical ragas to high-energy rhythmic drumming and dance, Hussain and his Masters of Percussion will energetically showcase the great breadth of Indian music in a fascinating journey you won’t want to miss!
