Time for Tabla

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

Zakir Hussain was a tabla-playing child prodigy born in Mumbai, touring the world by age 12 and eventually reaching about 160 international concert dates in a year. As an adult, Hussain is still a sought after musician, collaborating with artists like Edgar Meyer and Mickey Hart, performing with groups such as the Silk Road Ensemble, while also finding time to teach tabla to advanced students in both Mumbai and San Fransisco. Hussain has starred in films featuring his virtuoso tabla playing, such as Heat and Dust and the award winning Vanaprastham, for which he also composed the scores. Tonight, we hear Making Music. Also, music of David Macbride and Benjamin Britten.

Don't you show the current evening playlist for the same date when the music is being broadcast on Wnyc-FM on your website.. If so, please let me know how to access it.

Ouch. I can podcast the talk. And I do, every day. But I really like the 7pm switch to Evening Music. It's a clockwork, soothing reminder to wind down. Ow. Pourquoi? Corporate sponsors?
