His music has made him one of India’s top cultural ambassadors and a champion of contemporary world music.
Hussain also has composed for ballet, film and events including the 1996 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony. Joining him for this concert will be the Masters of Percussion, five players performing on other traditional Indian and Asian instruments.
