Zakir Hussain & Rakesh Chaurasia

by

Tabla titan Zakir Hussain may earn top billing, but this Hindustani showdown will bring out the cognoscenti largely because it marks the first mano-a-mano meeting of Hussain and former child bansuri flute prodigy Rakesh Chaurasia. One of the less employed instruments in the Indian classical arsenal, the bamboo flute makes for a refreshing mix of technical flash and emotional serenity.
