McCarter Theatre Center

Zakir Hussain and Dave Holland

And guest artists from India and the Jazz World

Wednesday May 2, 2018
Venue Matthews Theatre


Zakir Hussain’s percussion masters of India has been a fixture at McCarter for a decade—but he always has something new up his sleeve and this time it’s with American Jazz Master bassist Dave Holland, as they explore the relationship between jazz and Indian music, and how the two genres helped each other’s evolution. These two masters will be joined by Chris Potter on sax; jazz pianist Louiz Banks; drummer Gino Banks; and from India, guitarist Sanjay Divecha and composer/vocalist Shankar Mahadevani. Talk about crosscurrents—here is one that brings together not only two musical masters, but two art forms that share a common bond.
