Tabla player Zakir Hussain is the most important ambassador of traditional Indian music. With his ultra-rapid virtuoso playing and his overpowering, charming stage presence he has turned the table from an accompanying instrument to a solo instrument. Following his sold-out concert at Muziekgebouw in 2014 he will return there again to show us the great diversity of Indian percussion music together with his new 3-piece percussion band. Prodigy Zakir Hussain has been playing table since the age of 3. Throughout the years he has recorded 145 albums, with Indian as well as western musicians. He played all over the world in many places, for example in the White House at the invitation of president Barack Obama, during the International Jazz Day All-Star Global Concert.
