    A rare UK show from tabla master Zakir Hussain.

    A classical repertoire of ragas and talas is at the heart of music exploring the frontier between traditional and contemporary.

    Hussain’s spectacular tabla solos are one of the great sights and sounds in music today – a virtuoso at the very height of his creative powers.

    Here, Hussain is accompanied by a hand-picked group of India’s finest musicians: Rakesh Chaurasia (bansuri), Sabir Khan (sarangi), Abbos Kosimov (doyra), Deepak Bhatt (dohl) and Vijay S. Chavan (dholki).

    A true inspiration to behold, this award-winning performer has not only gained national treasure status in his homeland, but also on an international level.

    ‘Zakir Hussain, the peerless North Indian tabla player, favours an impish strain of virtuosity. He’s a fearsome technician but also a whimsical inventor, devoted to exuberant play’ New York Times

    ‘Legends drum among us… Zakir Hussain has accomplished more with his hands and heart than most other artists in the world let alone percussionists’ DRUM! Magazine
