"There seems to be no limit to the versatility of Ustad Zakir Hussain."

World Stage
Zakir Hussain and the Masters of Percussion

Tabla legend and master improviser Zakir Hussain is a natural collaborator—and there are perhaps no artists he enjoys working with more than his fellow percussionists. For his popular Masters of Percussion program, Hussain is joined by an international cast of accomplished fellow drummers, and together they explore traditional North Indian drumming, along with the layered, animated rhythms of popular and folk music from around the world. Expect virtuosic solos, playfully competitive duets, and thrilling ensemble jams.
