Tabla maestro Zakir Hussain performs in duet with Niladri Kumar, a virtuoso of the sitar and of his own invention, the zitar—a five-stringed electric sitar.

In an essay for the Times of India, Kumar put it best, saying, “Zakirji’s music is futuristic, full of perfection, improvisation, creativity, newness, flair, connectivity, knowledge, skill, dexterity, prayer, and passion.”

Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation.
