Event description
Berklee College of Music will honor the life and music of Ustad Zakir Hussain, the prolific Grammy-winning tabla virtuoso.

About this Event

Ustad Zakir Hussain will be presented with an honorary doctorate for his immense contribution to the global music community. The evening’s concert will feature the renowned Berklee Indian Ensemble, with an international cast of musicians performing original compositions as well as new interpretations of Zakir Ji's timeless music with the maestro himself.

Zakir Ji's performances are an experience in themselves. His collaborations with the "Who's Who" of the global music world include Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Ravi Shankar, and Yo-Yo Ma, to name a few. With over 149 albums to his credit, his versatility, dexterity, and effortless mastery have earned him not only the love and adoration of fans all over the world, but several much deserved accolades in India as well as internationally.

Formed in 2011, the Berklee Indian Ensemble (BIE) has become a global viral sensation in their own right with over 152 million hits for their music videos. One of the most diverse ensembles at Berklee with musicians from 49 countries, they are known for their India-inspired sound that is nuanced, innovative, and hip, yet accessible. From a Carnatic thillana or a high-adrenaline konnakol conversation to Indo-jazz experiments or qawwali, the ensemble performs an expansive repertoire with the ultimate goal of presenting concerts entirely comprising original compositions.

Produced by Berklee India Exchange, the concert will take place at Klarman Hall at Harvard Business School.
