STG Presents Zakir Hussain - Masters of Percussion at The Moore Theatre on March 25, 2021 as a part of our 2020/2021 Performing Arts Season.
Playing in the footsteps of his illustrious father, Ustad Allarakha, who with Ravi Shankar introduced the glorious music of India to America, Zakir Hussain has acted as a musical bridge between his birth land and the rest of the world. To that end, every other year since 1996, he has served as curator, producer, and host in bringing the very cream of Indian music to tour America and Europe with his series Zakir Hussain and Masters of Percussion.
It is an obligation he takes very seriously, spending considerable time searching for unusual instruments and performers in diverse corners of the South Asian continent. In the process, he has unearthed little-known traditions that feed into the greater stream of Indian music, playing an educational role in ensuring that these modes remain alive, to be handed down from generation to generation.
All of it creates a truly beautiful field from which he can bring the Masters of Percussion to the West. The 2021 version will be no exception, presenting American audiences with extraordinary and exciting – and often spontaneous – combinations of percussive as well as melodic performers.
