Zakir Hussain
Tabla Virtuoso & World Musician
TM Krishna
Karnatik Musician, Author & Activist

When musicians of two proudly distinct though overlapping traditions encounter each other as two contemplative artists and thinking people of music, the conversation is no less than a refreshing jugalbandi of the highest order.

In this episode of BIC Talks, Ustad Zakir Hussain and TM Krishna meet and converse for the first time. In a freewheeling tête-à-tête leaving their performative selves aside and talk about their respective experiences that have shaped them as artists, their craft, artistry, the importance of listening and engagement with the world around them.

This conversation is adapted from a BIC Streams session presented by JSW, in collaboration with Literature Live.
