Tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain at the Barbican

Tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain explores how Jazz influenced the popular music of India alongside Dave Holland and Chris Potter.

A true master of the Indian Classical tradition – Zakir Hussain’s hypnotic percussive playing is unmistakable. Refusing to be confined to the music of his homeland, throughout the years he has embarked on a multitude of creative collaborations that transcend boundaries. This latest project sees him joined by two Jazz stalwarts, bassist Dave Holland and saxophonist Chris Potter, as they respond to a period in the mid 20th century that saw Jazz and Hollywood musicals impact upon Indian popular music.
