Zakir Hussain
Tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain proudly presents TISRA (three). This unique trio is comprised of tabla (hand drums), sarangi (bowed stringed instrument), and bansuri (bamboo flute), a combination not often heard on the classical stage. Sarangi and bansuri each have roots in ancient India and its mythology; both are also folk instruments. TISRA showcases the rich folk and classical traditions of the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Punjab. This colorful mix combined with Indian classical music and the rich rhythm repertoire of Punjab makes for a compelling offering that TISRA brings to audiences in the United States.
