About

Charismatic and captivating, the live performances of tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain are aurally and visually stunning - a master of the Indian classical tradition, and a musical world traveller whose creative collaborations transcend boundaries. His newest collaboration explores how jazz influenced the popular music of India, tracing a story that harks back to the Hollywood musicals of the 30s and 40s and India's burgeoning film industry. A few decades later, and whilst the West embraced Indian classical music, India itself absorbed the jazz spirit, with musicians such as pianist Louiz Banks and guitarist Sanjay Divecha leading the way - both featured in tonight's concert in a terrific ensemble alongside singer/violinist Ganesh Rajagopalan, with jazz stars Holland and Potter, playing an exclusive European date.
