Zakir Hussain Back in Dubai
Zakir Hussain will topline the Nirvana 2014 concert along with Shankar Mahadevan and Louis Banks
He’s spell-binding, he’s passionate, he’s a legend and he’s returning to Dubai to wow us all. Last year, we were floored by tabla maestro Zakir Hussain’s magic fingers when he visited the city for the Nirvana 2013 concert along with Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck, U Srinivas and Rakesh Chaurasia. Well, for those who couldn’t have enough of Zakir, there is good news for he is back with a pre-Republic Day gift – a fantastic Nirvana 2014 concert on January 25 at the Madinat Arena in Madinat Jumeirah.
The line-up is arguably even more exciting. Joining Zakir on stage for Nirvana 2014 will be Jazz legend Louis Banks, sitar sensation Niladri Kumar, Zakir’s brother and percussionist Taufiq Qureshi and leading Bollywood music composer Shankar Mahadevan! The concert – a mix of Indian, jazz, Carnatic, Bollywood and folk music - is being organised as part of the Dubai Shopping Festival and will be held at the Madinat Jumeirah. So what can we expect from the event? In Zakir’s own words it will be “unpredictable” but “all good stuff.”
