Event Details
Zakir Hussain’s destiny as a virtuoso tabla player was established at
the knee of his father, the acclaimed classical percussionist Alla
Rakha. Hussain’s own musical curiosity, masterful improvisations, and
uncanny intuition then not only established him as a national treasure
in his own country, India, but gained him global fame as a chief
architect of the contemporary world music movement. His collaborations
with such diverse luminaries as Yo-Yo Ma, George Harrison, Mark Morris,
the Grateful Dead, and ELLNORA alumni John McLaughlin and Béla Fleck
have used centuries-old Indian hand-drum rhythms to bridge cultures and
bring together generations of listeners and musicians. One such musician
is acclaimed bansuri (bamboo flute) player Rakesh Chaurasia, who is the
student and nephew of venerable flutist Pandit Hariprisad Churasia and
who has toured with musical peers such as Joshua Redman and Edgar Meyer.
Together, Hussain and Chaurasia will celebrate Indian classical music
in a program of exquisite mastery.
