Tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain began touring nearly 25 years ago as a duo with his late father and mentor, the legendary Ustad Allarakha. Hussain’s collaborators—musicians he is eager to introduce to international audiences—are family members, longtime partners, and dear friends. “I don’t choose instruments, I choose people,” Hussain has said, “and my main objective in the whole evening is to find spots where all these great masters will be highlighted, be let loose.”
