Classical Music

With Triveni, Zakir Hussain returns to Sydney Opera House after more than a decade, this time with two of India’s extraordinary string players, Kala Ramnath (Hindustani Violin) and Jayanthi Kumaresh (Carnatic Veena).

Zakir Hussain, the global percussion luminary, teams up with two of India’s extraordinary string players, Kala Ramnath and Jayanthi Kumaresh.

Triveni - an exhilarating Indian music experience

Zakir Hussain, Kala Ramnath, and Jayanthi Kumaresh came together for the first time as a trio for the 2022 Triveni tour in the US. Leading Indian classical exponents of their respective instruments - Tabla, Violin and Saraswati Veena, each is also renowned as a virtuoso collaborator, pathbreaker, and educator, advancing the art of their instruments to remarkable levels in the context of their Indian classical traditions and beyond. Feted and honoured globally with numerous awards, each has successfully toured all over the world with their own acclaimed solo projects.

Triveni is the mythical site of the union of three sacred rivers in India. The name aptly represents the confluence of the varied musicality the three maestros bring to this unique collaboration in the sphere of classical music – an intricate, seamlessly woven tapestry of rhythm and melody rooted in India’s northern (Hindustani) and southern (Carnatic) classical music traditions. Triveni is a fluent, joyous and an entirely original musical conversation. The sheer mastery of the musicians makes Triveni a sonic experience of the highest order for global music afficionados.
