Zakir is the first name to strike your mind if one is talking about the tabla. The tabla maestro was awarded the prestigious Padma Bhushan Award in 2002 before a Grammy came in 2009 to approve of his talent on the world map. It was for Contemporary World Music Album ‘Global Drum Project’ on which he worked alongside Mickey Hart, Sikiru Adepoju & Giovanni Hidalgo. Having done musical concerts all around the globe, Zakir indeed is a master of percussion.
