Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain

Berklee Performance Center

Three masterful genre-benders—Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, and Edgar Meyer—come together once again to blur geographic borders and musical boundaries for an exuberantly virtuosic and exciting evening of music.  The versatility of the banjo, the tabla, and the double bass allow for limitless possibilities across genres: bluegrass, classical, global music, jazz, and more come together and recombine in unheard-of ways. The trio—each an engaging performer—has unmistakable rapport that forms a foundation for their musical alchemy.  

Their joy is palpable, and the audience will share the excitement and enthusiasm!

“Contextually speaking, a group bringing together the American, European, and Indian sounds of banjo, tabla, double bass, and wooden flute might seem a strange musical quilt. Then again, the parties involved in the new power trio of banjoist extraordinaire Béla Fleck, tabla master Zakir Hussain, and double bassist Edgar Meyer … include musicians well accustomed to musical border crossings and genre crosstalk.”
