Zakir Hussain is rightly called a maestro of the tabla. The Mumbai-born percussionist has such command of his chosen instrument that he's collaborated with musicians of all stripes from Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart to freak-jazz bassist Bill Laswell. Even on his own, Hussain is a wonder to listen to, with speedy rumbles and intoxicating melodicism pulled from just a pair of hand drums. Tonight, he performs backed by Masters of Percussion, an ensemble that includes the brilliant sitarist Niladri Kumar and sarangi player Dilshad Khan. ROBERT HAM
