Good afternoon readers:

Presented by Asian Cultural Association, “CrossCurrents” takes the stage on Nov. 4, 2017, in Orlando.

The acknowledged master of Indian tabla has joined forces with the renowned jazz bassist, composer and arranger Dave Holland (who got his start with the legendary Miles Davis Bitches Brew group) to form an ensemble that pays tribute to the nexus of two improvisational music forms from opposite sides of the globe.
This outstanding band features not only Hussain and Holland but the renowned New York jazz saxophonist Chris Potter and the outstanding Bollywood composer/vocalist Shankar Mahadevan, legendary Indian jazz pianist Louiz Banks, his brother Gino on drums, and Sanjay Divecha on guitar.
