Zakir Hussain and the Masters of Percussion

BRETT CAMPBELL
7:30 pm., Friday March 21 | $10-$75.
 
[PERCUSSION DISCUSSION] Already a legendary tabla prodigy in his native India by the time he was in his 20s, Zakir Hussain gained worldwide fame in the West thanks to his collaborations with Ravi Shankar, Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, Van Morrison, George Harrison, John McLaughlin (in the pioneering world music/jazz-fusion band, Shakti) and more. Hussain regularly tours with fellow percussion virtuosos, resulting in frequently astonishing and explosive fusillades of beats. This time, he brings prizewinning co-percussors from various North and South Indian traditions, plus sitar and sarangi masters, and the first Western drummer to join the party: Steve Smith, formerly of Journey. 



Where: Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
