Ustad Zakir Hussain is the world's best known Indian tabla player. Popularly known as the Tabla Maestro, his consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as a national treasure in India, but also earned him worldwide fame.
 
His playing is marked by uncanny intuition and masterful improvisational dexterity, founded in formidable knowledge and study.
 
Widely considered a chief architect of the contemporary world music movement, Zakir’s contribution to world music has been unique, with many historic collaborations including John McLaughlin, George Harrison, YoYo Ma, Joe Henderson, Van Morrison, Airto Moreira, Pharoah Sanders, Billy Cobham, Mark Morris, Rennie Harris, and the Kodo drummers.
 
For his Maui performance, Hussain will be accompanied by sitar virtuoso, Niladri Kumar, an Indian classical and fusion musician. Both are known for experimentation: Kumar designed and sometimes plays an electrified instrument he calls the zitar, and Hussain has often ventured into rock, jazz, and even Western classical music.
 
Each is grounded in Hindustani musical practice and is the product of venerable dynasties and traditional apprenticeships.
