Zakir Hussain - Masters of Percussion / Amherst
Zakir Hussain is appreciated 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 earned him worldwide fame. His playing is marked by uncanny intuition and masterful improvisational dexterity, founded in formidable knowledge and study. The favorite accompanist for many of India's greatest classical musicians and dancers, he has not let his genius rest there. The concert features not just Hussain, but nine renowned musicians playing percussion instruments as well as sitar and sarangi (a north Indian stringed instrument played with a bow).

There will be a pre-performance talk with Ranjanaa Devi, Director of the Asian Arts & Culture Program, from 7 PM – 7:30 PM in the rear seating area of the Concert Hall.
