An Evening with USTAD ZAKIR HUSSAIN

Zakir Hussain Tabla,Tafuiq Quereshi the percussionist, Sabir Khan on Sarangi, Niladri Kumar on Sitar.

The names themselves sound legendary,just imagine what the performace must've been like.
It was as if Music is their property which they have inherited from ancestors.
It was as if they own the instrument and dont share the knowledge with others.
It was as if i'm sitting in a Durbar and listening to those 300 year old compositions!!
It is really scary to imagine what those people do every day to reach this zenith of perfection.
Esply
Zakir's description of his compositions.and his sense of humour.
Niladri's rendetion of Beethoven's Fur Elise and its transition into RaghuPati Raghava Rajaram was too too too good.
Over all Thank you for the evening :-)
