“DazzlingZakir Hussain on tabla and virtuoso Niladri Kumar on sitar delivered to the New Yorkers an incredible and astonishing performance. That was nothing short of majestic to mesmerize the bursting audience! The charisma of both artists, the geniality and creativity of their agile fingers flirting with their respective instruments and the brilliant combination of two gifted maestros where all there!

Niladri adding up to his magnificent sitar a feel of Pink Floyd’s
psychedelic sound… a visceral taste of the new India?

We wish you both so much more to come!”

Watch this video to get an idea how the two great musicians sounded at Town Hall.
