Zakir Hussain


April 7, 2022
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Kala Ramnath, violin
Jayanthi Kumaresh, Saraswati veena

“The presiding genius and global ambassador for North Indian classical music” (The Telegraph) Zakir Hussain returns to our stage, joined for the first time by Kala Ramnath, an innovative representative of North Indian raga tradition, and Jayanthi Kumaresh, the leading exponent of the ancient South Indian veena. An international phenomenon and true virtuoso, Hussain leads an exploration of the varied musical dialogues of North and South Indian rhythm traditions. Don’t miss this Penn Live Arts favorite, as “if there is such a thing as a tabla superstar, Indian virtuoso Zakir Hussain is it.” (The Chicago Tribune)
