Ustad Zakir Hussain’s biography

Zakir Hussain is today appreciated both in the field of percussion and in the music world at large as an international phenomenon. A classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order, his consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as a national treasure in his own country, India, but gained him worldwide fame. His playing is marked by uncanny intuition and masterful improvisational dexterity, founded in formidable knowledge and study The favorite accompanist for many of India's greatest classical musicians and dancers, he has not let his genius rest there.

Widely considered a chief architect of the contemporary world music movement, Zakir's contribution to world music has been unique, with many historic collaborations, including Shakti, which he founded with John McLaughlin and L. Shankar, the Diga Rhythm Band, Making Music, Planet Drum with Mickey Hart, Tabla Beat Science, Sangam with Charles Lloyd and Eric Harland and recordings and performances with artists as diverse as George Harrison, Joe Henderson, Van Morrison, Airto Moreira, Giovanni Hidalgo, Pharoah Sanders, Billy Cobham, Rennie Harris, and the Kodo drummers.

A child prodigy, Zakir was touring by the age of twelve, the gifted son of his great father, tabla legend Ustad Alla Rakha. Zakir came to the United States in 1970, embarking on an international career which includes no fewer than 150 concert dates a year. He has composed and recorded many albums and soundtracks, and has received widespread recognition as a composer for his many ensembles and collaborations. He has composed soundtracks for the films In Custody, and The Mystic Masseur directed by Ismail Merchant, Bertolucci's Little Buddha, for which Zakir composed, performed and acted as Indian music advisor, Vanaprastham (The Last Dance), chosen to be screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May, 1999, Saaz, and Everybody Says I'm Fine.

Zakir received the distinct honor of co-composing the opening music for the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, 1996. He was commissioned to compose music for Alonzo King's Lines, and to compose an original work for the San Francisco Jazz Festival, both in 1998. He has received numerous grants and awards, including participation in the Meet the Composer programs funded by the Pew Memorial Trust and an "Izzie" (Isadora Duncan Award) for his composition for Lines. In 2000, Zakir worked again with choreographer Alonzo King, this time composing music for The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. In 2002, his commissioned work for choreographer Mark Morris' "Kolam" premiered as part of YoYo Ma's "Silk Road Project" with YoYo Ma and Zakir performing together live for the performance. In September, 2006, Triple Concerto for Banjo, Bass and Tabla, a piece co-composed by Zakir, Edgar Meyer and Bela Fleck, was performed by them with the Nashville Symphony at the gala opening of the Schermerhorn Symphony Hall in Nashville. Zakir reunited with choreographer Alonzo King in 2007 for Lines Ballet's 25th anniversary celebration, creating acclaimed music for King's new work, Rasa. The government of India in 2007 chose Zakir to compose an anthem to celebrate India's 60th year of independence. The song, "Jai Hind", has been recorded by an array of India's finest classical vocalists and pop singers.

The recipient of countless honors, Zakir has received the titles of Padma Bhushan, in 2002, and Padma Shri, in 1988, becoming the youngest percussionist to be awarded these, given to civilians of merit, by the Indian government. In 1990, he was awarded the Indo-American Award in recognition for his outstanding cultural contribution to relations between the United States and India. In April, 1991, he was presented with the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award by the President of India, making him one of the youngest musicians to receive this recognition from India's governing cultural institute. In 2006, he was the recipient of the prestigious Kalidas Samman, an award for artists of exceptional achievement, from the government of Madhya Pradesh. In 2007, readers' polls from both Modern Drummer and Drum! magazines named him Best World Music and Best Worldbeat Drummer respectively.

In 1987, his first solo release, Making Music, was acclaimed as "one of the most inspired East-West fusion albums ever recorded." In 1992, Planet Drum, an album co-created and produced by Zakir and Mickey Hart, was awarded a Grammy for Best World Music Album, the Downbeat Critics' Poll for Best World Beat Album and the NARM Indie Best Seller Award for World Music Recording. Planet Drum, with Zakir as music director, toured nationally in 1996 and 1997. The band has re-emerged as Global Drum Project, touring widely in the '07 and '08 seasons.

Zakir is the recipient of the 1999 National Heritage Fellowship, the United States' most prestigious honor for a master in the traditional arts, presented by First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton at the United States Senate on September 28, 1999. In 2005, he was named an Old Dominion Fellow by the Humanities Council at Princeton University, where he resided for the 2005-2006 autumn semester as full professor in the music department, teaching a survey course in Indian classical music and dance. In the spring of 2007, this course was taught again by Zakir, this time at Stanford University.

In 1992, Zakir founded Moment! Records which features original collaborations in the field of contemporary world music, as well as live concert performances by great masters of the classical music of India. The label presents Zakir's own world percussion ensemble, The Rhythm Experience, both North and South Indian classical recordings, Best of Shakti and a Masters of Percussion series. Moment Records' 2006 release "Golden Strings of the Sarode" with Aashish Khan and Zakir Hussain was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Traditional World Music category for that year.

Previously, if a company got caught, its lawyers in many cases would be able to negotiate a financial settlement. "This way it really fits with the concept of learning."

In fact some Doctors bump up the office visit fee for people using the discount plan. Exercise is known to release endorphins and this is a most effective form of anti depressant. Apply twice a day, Mulberry so that exotic sounding ingredients such as blackout yeast extract and dianella ensifolia, Mulberry can work their magic.

One such resource with definitions, data, links to national and state anti bullying and harassment laws as well as other useful information for parents and families is the PACER Fact Sheet.. Take one of a middle temper; or if it may not be found in one man, combine two of either sort; and forget not to call as well, the best acquainted with your body, as the best reputed of for his facultyAnyway. He'll bring his own particular wisdom, charisma and wit to the Twelfth Doctor and take the show into an exciting new era. You'll find that it works just as well and you have less to clean out of the sink! So if you use 1 tube of toothpaste per month at a cost of about $3 per tube, cutting your use in half will save you $18 per year.Now do the same with your shampoo and liquid body soap use a little less each day until you find the least amount you can use and still get the results you want.

It is very difficult to tell someone you do not want them to fix something that needs to be fixed. It's very important that you interact well with your mental health coach. It should be one that is prevalent in the area. After this, I did a year's internship at a private, independent audiology clinic and at Palmerston North Hospital, before sitting a two day exam to become a member of the NZ Audiological Society.

The inflammation is caused when the disease from other the person gets sexually transmitted, injury from inserting any foreign object or by cancer. Because I have started to run on a regular basis both my kids and my wife have started walk/jogging. Health is a very emotional issue and people are more vunerable to being scammed when a basic life need is concerned..

Good agents are full service they will be around to help you in any situation for the life of your policy.. It takes a little longer to find sites that tell the less palatable details.. But the fact is that no scientifically drive research has revealed a link between masturbation and hair loss; on the other hand, male pattern baldness has been positively linked to geneticsDespite the fact that most Americans die of painful and debilitating diseases, many do not support free health care for every citizen. This actually means that your employer or company will not be paying any kind of part payment for the insurance cover premium.
