Triple Grammy Winner Zakir Hussain On Tour

July 7 @ 6:00 pm

Triple Grammy-winner and virtuoso tabla legend Zakir Hussain performs Triveni with leading Indian string performers, in Sydney and Melbourne in a performance that has toured the world including the US (Washington Arts Centre) and Singapore.

The world’s leading tabla player, musical producer, film actor and composer returns to Australia after more than a decade, to perform Triveni with two of India’s top string players, Kala Ramnath playing the Hindustani violin and Jayanthi Kumaresh (Carnatic veena).

Hussain made history at the recent 2024 Grammy Awards becoming the first Indian to win three of Grammys in a single night. He was among the winners in the Best Global Music Performance, Best Contemporary Instrumental Album and Best Global Music Album categories. He was a child prodigy who began his professional career at the age of twelve, accompanying India’s greatest classical musicians and dancers and touring internationally with great success by the age of eighteen.

Triveni is the mythical site of the union of three sacred rivers in India, and the name aptly represents the merging of the varied musicality these three maestros bring to this collaboration. Hussain, Ramnath and Kumaresh are leading Indian classical exponents of their respective instruments. The three came together for the first time as a trio for the 2022 Triveni tour in the US.

Triveni Duration – approximately 100 minutes
