Crosscurrents Zakir Hussain & Dave Holland


Masters of jazz and Indian classical music unite in a deep-grooving, genre-transcending super-group.

Famed both as instrumental virtuosos and as stylistic adventurers, Indian tabla maestro Zakir Hussain and bassist and 2017 NEA Jazz Master Dave Holland forge new and exciting connections between Indian classical music and jazz—two musics rooted in improvisation and rhythmic dynamism—joined by an all-star band including saxophonist Chris Potter and renowned Bollywood playback vocalist Shankar Mahadevan.

This performance is made possible in part by the generous support of Gordon and Lisa Rush. Washington Performing Arts performances at Lisner Auditorium are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation.
