In the world of Indian classical music, there is no artist quite like Zakir Hussain. The GRAMMY-winning tabla maestro is celebrated not only as an innovative drummer, but as a powerful force in expanding Indian music around the globe. He returns to NJPAC by popular demand with his Masters of Percussion program — a long-running, ever-evolving collaboration of the best drummers on the planet. They weave together their distinctive instruments, musical traditions and percussive stylings into a multicultural masterpiece. You'll marvel at the experience.

GRAMMY winning tabla drummer Zakir Hussain first entered the western world's consciousness in the ‘70s with his collaborations with George Harrison, John Handy, Van Morrison and Earth, Wind & Fire. He's lauded for his group Shakti, which he founded with John McLaughlin and L. Shankar, and for Planet Drum with Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. The London Telegraph calls him “the presiding genius and global ambassador for North Indian classical music.”
