“The peerless North Indian tabla player…favors an impish strain of virtuosity.” — The New York Times

“It’s hard to imagine a better champion for Indian classical music in the West than Zakir Hussain.” — San Jose Mercury News

The scion of a legendary Hindustani percussion dynasty, Zakir Hussain is universally acknowledged as the world’s greatest tabla virtuoso, a master of classical North Indian music who has collaborated with a glittering roster of international stars. Bay Area audiences have been fortunate to experience Hussain’s groundbreaking creative journey up close since he settled in the region to teach at San Anselmo’s Ali Akbar Khan College of Music in 1970. As a bandleader, a dogged promoter of Hindustani and South Indian Carnatic traditions, a Bollywood and Hollywood film composer, and a pioneer of world music and Indo-jazz fusion, he’s blazed a mind-boggling array of musical trails. His SFJAZZ Center residency showcases a cross section of his creative pursuits, building on longstanding relationships and introducing several new ones.

In his 2006 Listening Party for SFJAZZ, Zakir Hussain proved he is also a masterful storyteller with a career that tranverses much of modern music. This is a perfect introduction to this week of diverse concerts curated by a truly singular voice.
