Virtuosic tabla master Zakir Hussain is a legendary percussionist. Son of the lauded table player Alla Rakha, Hussain serves as an international ambassador for Hindustani classical music. For decades, his improvisational skill has found him playing alongside artists both from his home country of India as well as throughout the world, including Western collaborators George Harrison, Mickey Hart, Pharoah Sanders, and Van Morrison. In 1974, he co-founded Shakti with Mahavishnu Orchestra leader John McLaughlin and L. Shankar, releasing three extraordinary albums with the worldly jazz fusion group in as many years.

For this special return engagement in Durham, Hussain brings his trio, including Jayanthi Kumaresh on veena and Kala Ramnath on Carnatic and violin.
