Zakir Hussain ‘live’

Society Dharani will kick-off this year’s programme with ‘An Evening With Zakir Hussain,’ which will have the tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain along with the gifted sarangi player Dilshad Khan in concert.

One of India’s greatest classical musicians, Zakir Hussain has been responsible in reinventing the tabla. More then being a favourite accompanist of some of the greatest names in music and dance, Zakir Hussain has been involved in some historic collaboration. His name is now synonymous with tabla.

Dilshad Khan descends from a rich lineage of talented musicians. Initiated into playing the sarangi by his father Ustad Nasir Khan, a well known sitar player, he has had training under his grandfather Ustad Gulab Khan, an accomplished sarangi player and vocalist, and his uncle Ustad Sultan Khan, the world renowned sarangi player. Dilshad has performed all over the world and has also been part of film music in Bollywood and Hollywood.
