ABOUT THE SHOW:

Crosscurrents is an international super-group led by and the world's foremost tabla virtuoso, Zakir Hussain and 2017 NEA Jazz Master bassist Dave Holland.

Hussain is a living master of the 3,000-year-old tabla percussion tradition and "one of the architects of modern world music." (NPR) Since the 1960s, he has been a global music ambassador who has formed significant cross-cultural projects and worked with George Harrison, the Grateful Dead, Shakti (with John McLaughlin), Béla Fleck, Pharoah Sanders, and Sangam (with Charles Lloyd).

Holland is a famously versatile bassist who has led numerous Grammy Award-winning bands and anchored groundbreaking groups led by Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, and Jack DeJohnette.

Crosscurrents' extraordinary lineup also features globally-celebrated vocalist Shankar Mahadevan. As well as American saxophonist Chris Potter, called "the most compelling saxophonist of his generation" (Detroit Free Press), plus three of India's most progressive musicians: guitarist Sanjay Divecha, pianist Louiz Banks, and drummer Gino Banks.

This super-group is the latest representation of the long and vibrant relationship between jazz and Indian classical music, both of which have improvisation as a core tenet. Through distinctive original compositions, Western jazz standards, 12-bar blues numbers, and Indian classical pieces, you will witness a cutting-edge development in this cross-cultural continuum.

This is their first-ever Utah performance, and it will be a one-of-a-kind cultural experience that unifies two of the world's most influential genres.
