Zakir Hussain’s Masters of Percussion


The Town Hall 1549903469
123 West 43rd Street
New York, NY 10036 United States



April 24, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT



Zakir Hussain’s Masters of Percussion  will perform on April 24 at the World Music Institute. The group has grown out of Zakir’s duet tours with his late father, the legendary Ustad Allarakha. They began their biennial appearances in 1996 to provide a platform for rarely heard rhythm traditions from India. Over time, the ensemble has expanded to include drummers and percussionists from many world traditions. 2019 will see Zakir joined by Niladri Kumar on sitar, Eric Harland (Charles Lloyd, Sangam) on Western drums, and the Kerala Drummers from the Southwestern coast of India.
