CROSSCURRENTS W/ ZAKIR HUSSAIN
London , United Kingdom
Barbican HallSilk St, London EC2Y 8DS, UK
A true master of the Indian Classical tradition – Zakir Hussain’s hypnotic percussive playing is unmistakeable. 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.
