This concert will be broadcast live as part of Fridays Live, available to all SFJAZZ Members.

In a performance echoing the drum invocation that opened the SFJAZZ Center in January 2013 and the cross-cultural evening of percussion virtuosity he presented during his March 2013 week of residency, Zakir Hussain signals the official re-opening of the SFJAZZ Center with a trio of friends who also happen to be two of the greatest percussionists on earth — drumset phenomenon Eric Harland, Uzbek doyra master Abbos Kosimov, and jazz-infuenced multi-instrumentalist Mark de Clive-Lowe.

Hussain is universally acknowledged as the world’s greatest tabla virtuoso, the scion of a legendary percussion dynasty and a master of classical North Indian music who has collaborated with a glittering roster of international stars, from the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart to guitar giant John McLaughlin. Bay Area audiences have been fortunate to experience Hussain’s groundbreaking creative journey up close since he settled in the region to teach at San Anselmo’s Ali Akbar Khan College of Music in 1970. As a bandleader, a dogged promoter of Indian musical traditions, a Bollywood and Hollywood film composer, and a pioneer of world music and Indo-jazz fusion, he’s blazed a mind-boggling array of musical trails.

With Harland, Kosimov, and de Clive-Lowe, Hussain has again assembled a globally diverse trio of percussive mastery that re-opens the SFJAZZ Center in a most auspicious way.

A fearsome technician but also a whimsical inventor, devoted to exuberant play.
