World Music Institute is proud to present Indian tabla legend and longtime WMI Honorary Board Member, Zakir Hussain, as he delivers an exclusive online concert streaming live from Asia Society in New York City. Zakir is joined by virtuoso violinist Ganesh Rajagopalan for a special program of ragas from north and south India. Zakir will represent the north Indian classical Hindustani music system and Ganesh will represent the south Indian classical Carnatic music system. This meeting of two giants of Indian classical music and the magical musical chemistry between them and their instruments is not to be missed.
