Zakir Hussain is an accomplished Indian tabla player who has gone on to receive international acclaim for his unique take on the instrument. Hussain was born in Mumbai to a well respected tabla player, Alla Rakha, who taught his son the intricacies of the tabla at a young age. Because of his father's tutelage, Hussain would go on to master the instrument--by age nine he was considered a prodigy and by age 12 he was touring. Having since relocated to the United States, Hussain manages to play an astonishing number of concerts a year (typically upwards of 150) in addition to teaching tabla master classes in San Francisco and Mumbai.
