Aspen Music Festival: As We Speak with Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer, bass, Zakir Hussain, tabla, and Rakesh Chaurasia, bansuri



Harris Concert Hall, 960 N 3rd St., Aspen, CO 81611

Event Description

"Prepare to be mesmerized when four virtuosi present a concert based on their latest album As We Speak. Tabla player Zakir Hussain explains: 'When we are performing on stage, in composing mode or creating mode, we are basically having a conversation. So the music emerges as we speak.' The program will showcase the group’s breathtaking abilities as instrumentalists as well as the wide range of influences at their command. The quartet glides easily between the cerebral complexity of Indian rhythm and the gut-level groove of a funky bass line, sounding equally at home with the rigors of raga. Don’t miss this chance to experience a sound world where classical, Indian, and bluegrass genres meet!"
