“If there is such a thing as a tabla superstar, Indian virtuoso Zakir Hussain is it.” —Chicago Tribune
Vibrant, illustrious, phenomenal. Zakir Hussain, classical tabla virtuoso, has established himself as one of the world’s most esteemed and influential musicians, renowned for his genre-defying collaborations. "Masters of Percussion," an offshoot of Hussain’s memorable tours with his father, the legendary Ustad Allarakha, has enjoyed successful tours for decades. Featuring uncanny intuition and masterful improvisational dexterity, the ensemble includes great percussionists from many world traditions, including jazz, as well as the occasional stringed instrument.
For more than 80 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.
