Zakir Hussain with Jayanthi Kumaresh & R. Kumaresh
Madsen Recital Hall
April 2 @ 7:30 PM
Zakir Hussain is regarded as an international musical phenomenon. His consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as a national treasure in his home country of India, but have gained him worldwide fame and collaborations with artists as diverse as George Harrison, Yo-Yo Ma, and the Kodo Drummers. With percussive playing marked by uncanny intuition and masterful improvisational dexterity, Hussain is widely considered a chief architect of the contemporary world music movement. This performance will feature Hussain on the tabla, as well as collaborators Jayanthi Kumaresh on veena and R. Kumaresh on violin.
