TISRA – Zakir Hussain, Sabir Khan and Debopriya Chatterjee

Classical tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain returns to Place des Arts, this time accompanied by flautist Debopriya Chatterjee Ranadive and sarangi player Sabir Khan.

Zakir Hussain, percussion

His creative solos—bold yet firmly rooted in tradition—have made Zakir Hussain one of the greatest Indian percussionists of our time. Considered to be one of the main artisans of contemporary world music, his influence is undeniable, as his many collaborations with the likes of John McLaughlin, L. Shankar, George Harrison, Yo-Yo Ma, Joe Henderson, and Van Morrison have proven.

Zakir Hussain’s impressive dexterity, masterful improvisational skills, and extensive expertise all add up to a performance that promises to be unforgettable!

Sabir Khan, sarangi

Sabir Khan is a rising star of the sarangi. Born into a family of musicians stretching back eight generations, his grandfather Ustad Mehboob Khan was known as Sarangi Samrat (Emperor of Sarangi). He trained under his uncle Ustad Moinuddin Khan, a renowned Jaipur vocalist, studying alongside his cousin Momin. They have spent years working to uphold the family style on their instruments.

Sabir is an accomplished singer as well as a sarangi artist. His playing is influenced by the hypnotic loops of Sufi music, and also draws on the rhythms of Indian classical dance – a product of his time playing at the Jaipur Kathak Kendra dance academy. He became an All India Radio ‘A’ grade artist in his early twenties, and continues to expand his family’s already broad range of musical ideas.

Debopriya Chatterjee Ranadive, flute

Debopriya has chosen ‘flute’ as her way of life. After acquiring thorough training in classical music, both Indian and Western, she is poised to present her art to connoisseurs. For her unflinching dedication and excellence in her art, she has been bestowed with coveted awards like Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar from Sangeet Natak Akademi, the title of Surmani and the Sahara Excellence Award to name a few. She is the lead flautist in the all girl classical music band – Sakhi.
