    Description
    Zakir Hussain is an international music phenomenon. Tabla virtuoso, composer and percussionist, he is the eldest son of the legendary Ustad Allarakha Qureshi. Zakir gave his first public concert at the age of seven and was immediately hailed as a child prodigy. In later years, his masterful dexterity and creative genius led to him being one of the most sought-after accompanists to the very best of Hindustani classical musicians and dancers. He is also recognized as one of the foremost contemporary jazz and world music percussionists. In this book, Nasreen Munni Kabir takes the reader through the life and times of Zakir Hussain, the early years of growing up in Mahim, his training from age four with his extraordinary father, and how Zakir's passion for music helped establish him as a world musician of our age, a huge music star, and for many young Indians today a revered role model.
