Zakir Hussain has been my teacher for fifty years!! I lived across the street from him for a long time and was around him every day often all day long as a member of Diga Rhythm Band with him and Mickey Hart back in the mid 1970s. I have followed Shakti since the very beginning very closely and was even considered by Zakir as a possible conga player for the band in 1977. That didn’t happen which is fine because I didn’t think I was quite ready at that time. But I thought yesterday’s concert was one of the most amazing concerts I have ever heard in my entire life!! It was just about unbelievable that any band anywhere could be so incredibly great!! The band was totally on fire with every single note they played!! I was absolutely thrilled to be there every single second!! I am so glad that I saw this concert and so glad Zakir Husssin has been my tabla teacher all this time and that he encouraged me so much on my other percussion pursuits, especially the congas and the tabla drums. I’m so happy John McLaughlin and Zakir Hussain are still out there bringing some of the greatest music in the world to the world!!

About Zakir Hussain

Ustad Zakir Hussain (born 9 March 1951), son of tabla player Ustad Allah Rakha, is the most famous classical tabla player in India (and, probably, in the world) today. He is appreciated both in the field of percussion and in the music world at large. He has won many awards and much recognition for his contributions.

Zakir Hussain has worked with many leading Western and Indian artists, and has produced many works of East-West fusion, perhaps most notably with George Harrison. In the 1970s he recorded with an American psychedelic band called Shanti, with John McLaughlin in Shakti, with Shankar in the Diga Rhythm Band, with Mickey Hart on his Rolling Thunder album, and on the soundtrack for the movie Apocalypse Now. Shakti reunited in 1998 under the name Remember Shakti. Zakir Hussain has also continued to perform on many of Mickey Hart's albums, including Planet Drum, and on numerous recordings by John McLaughlin.

In 1992, Zakir Hussain founded Monument Records to produce live concert performances by masters of the classical music of India. The label presents Zakir's own world percussion ensemble, The Rhythm Experience, both North and South Indian classical recordings, Best of Shakti, and a Masters of Percussion series.

He has recorded and performed with artists as diverse as George Harrison, Ali Akbar Khan, Shivkumar Sharma, Vasant Rai, Imrat Khan, Ravi Shankar, Joe Henderson, Van Morrison, Jack Bruce, Tito Puente, Pharoah Sanders, David Grisman, Billy Cobham, Jan Garbarek, Earth, Wind and Fire, Kronos Quartet, the Hong Kong Symphony and the New Orleans Symphony.
