Also, pardon the delay; I completely forgot about posting here. For today, I have decided to post some clips of Tabla performance of Zakir Hussain. Tabla is an Indian percussion instrument thought to have been invented by Amir Khusrau, who is also known for inventing the Sitar. Zakir Hussain is the most prominent Tabla player around the world, and is known for his grasp of both traditional styles of playing as well as ability connect the Tabla to western music.

The first video is a duet featuring Zakir Hussain and his father Allah Rakha. The second is a song by the Tabla Beat Science, a group formed by Zakir Hussain that is known for fusion music. Hope you enjoy them.
