A musical feast of percussionists, the Masters of Percussion series of concerts is an outgrowth of Ustad Dr. Zakir Hussain’s renowned tabla duet tours with his father, the legendary Ustad Alla Rakha Khan. Under the direction of Ustad Dr. Zakir Hussain, this invigorating event explores the traditional repertoire of North Indian drumming, encompassing both folk and classical styles and featuring the melodic, or raga, and rhythmic, or tala, music of India.
Recorded live April 21, 2008, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center of New Mexico, Albuquerque, USA, this gathering of some of the world’s greatest percussion players will captivate and excite audiences of all kinds. A thrilling DVD and wonderful musical journey.
“Zakir Hussain’s tabla has spearheaded world music’s journey into jazz, fusion and electronica . . . the continuing work of a master musician who is preserving an ancient tradition even as he continues to innovate within it… the scion of a great percussive legacy.” THE WIRE
