A hallmark of tabla maestro, and Washington Performing Arts audience favorite, Zakir Hussain’s iconic career has been his groundbreaking work in fostering musical dialogues between Hindustani (North Indian) and Carnatic (South Indian) music. The title of this performance pays homage to this spirit: Triveni is the mythical site of the union of three sacred rivers in India, and at this performance, Hussain leads a trio of Indian classical music virtuosos. Each member of the group is a leading exponent of their respective instrument—tabla, violin, and Saraswati veena—and each is also renowned as a master collaborator, innovator, and educator. Expect to be awestruck!
