Dazzling Indian Classical virtuosity from North & South

The world’s preeminent tabla virtuoso joins forces with violinist Kumaresh Rajagopalan and his wife Jayanthi on veena, for a remarkable evening of Indian classical music. These three artists – each renowned for their own accomplishments – bring a unique contribution and influence to the collaboration. Hussain is of course a master tabla player known the world over for his dazzling and mesmerizing performances and collaborations with artists of all genres. Kumaresh R is known as one of India’s top Carnatic violinists known for his brilliant musical interpretations with numerous artists including the dynamic violin duo with his brother Ganesh. Jayanthi K is recognized as one of the world’s top performers on the veena, a plucked stringed instrument, considered by many a celestial instrument with ties to ancient times.

The musical result of these three brilliant artists joining together on stage will be a virtuosic performance combining northern Indian classical music with flavors of Carnatic music of the south.
