Zakir Hussain and Dave Holland: Crosscurrents

Crosscurrents is an international super-group led by 2017 NEA Jazz Master bassist Dave Holland and the world's foremost tabla virtuoso, Zakir Hussain. Holland is a famously versatile bassist who has led numerous Grammy Award-winning bands and anchored groundbreaking groups led by Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, and Jack DeJohnette. Hussain is a living master of the 3,000-year-old tabla percussion tradition and "one of the architects of modern world music." (NPR) Since the 1960s, he has been a global music ambassador who has formed significant cross-cultural projects and worked with George Harrison, the Grateful Dead, Shakti (with John McLaughlin), Béla Fleck, Pharoah Sanders, and Sangam (with Charles Lloyd).

Crosscurrents' extraordinary lineup also features American saxophonist Chris Potter, called "the most compelling saxophonist of his generation" (Detroit Free Press), plus four of India's most progressive musicians: guitarist Sanjay Divecha, pianist Louiz Banks, drummer Gino Banks, and the globally-celebrated vocalist Shankar Mahadevan. This super-group is the latest representation of the long and vibrant relationship between jazz and Indian classical music, both of which have improvisation as a core tenet.

Through distinctive original compositions, Western jazz standards, 12-bar blues numbers, and Indian classical pieces, you will witness a cutting-edge development in this cross-cultural continuum. This is their first-ever New York City performance, and it will be a one-of-a-kind cultural experience that unifies two of the world's most influential genres.

Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm.
