Zakir Hussain

Two-time Grammy Award-winner Zakir Hussain enjoys fame not only in his native India but around the world. The Chicago Tribune says, “if there is such a thing as a tabla superstar, Zakir Hussain is it.” Hussain’s incredibly loyal and large fan base is composed of enthusiasts young and old, valuing all musical types and genres. Zakir joins us with his Classical Hindustani Indian Trio featuring violinist Kala Ramnath and Jayanthi Kumaresh on saraswati veena.
