About the CD

The performances that conquer a portion of time get recognition as hits. Our legendary artistes own a treasury of hits and we saregama HMV are happy to be its curators. We recorded the great artistes during their prime era, preserved their art from efflux of period and keep on releasing it every time when the new age is craving for it. The epoch of these messtros is a source of inspiration to the future generations also.

About the Artist

Ustad Zakir Hussain is an illustrious son of a renowned son of a renowned father Ustad Alla Rakha an exponent of the Punjab gharana of table. This gifted person has scaled all the mountains of success in the world of rhythm. He started his training in table at the age of seven and played his first concert as an accompanist at the age of twelve with none other then sarod-maestro Ustad Ali Akbar khan. Now in his fifties Ustaz Hussain has come a far way and become one of the chief designer of the world music.

The trend of the world music is going rhythm oriented. Ustad Zakir Hussain was the first Indian to recognize and introduce this in Indian music. The same ability took him to the world arena of music. He formally trained himself in the stream of world music and then rightfully ventured into fusion music. As a soloist as an accompanist and as a co-artiste in fusion events Ustadji is just unparalleled.

Ustad Zakir Hussain has made Tabla a craze world over. He brings out poetic element in Tabla while playing a solo and underlines dramatic element in Tabla while accompanying great instrumentalists. His Punjab Gharana plays Tabla with open sounds (like Pakhavai). The trend of the world rhythm also leans towards open sound. So it was but natural for Ustadji to carve a niche for himself in the world of international music. His collaboration with ‘Shakti’, Diga Rhythm Band’, ‘Hong Kong symphony and New Orleans symphony are very successful ventures. His album makind music is considered to be a happening in fusion music. His another album planet drum fetched him a grammy Award. In India he has won sangeet natak akademi Award and has been conferred with Padma Bhushan a civil honour.

While presenting some of his hits in this album we have selected his solo performances and also accompaniments in his two stages as a youth and as a matured professional.

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
