Indian percussion virtuoso and Grammy-winning world-music phenom Zakir Hussain comes to the Balboa Theatre in San Diego, courtesy of La Jolla Music Society. Well-known for his work on the "Planet Drum" series with Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, Hussain's recorded more than 50 albums over the course of his long career, in genres ranging from jazz to classical to rock. His latest project, Crosscurrents, teams him with legendary jazz bassist Dave Holland, a two-time Grammy winner who's played with greats like Miles Davis, Joe Henderson, Herbie Hancock and dozens more, and was named an NEA Jazz Master in 2017. A cross-cultural, genre-fusing phenomenon, the world-renowned musicians of Crosscurrents bridge jazz and the music of India, resulting in a one-of-a-kind musical experience.
