Pandit Shivkumar Sharma and Zakir Hussain, the world's greatest performers on santoor and tabla respectively, are two legends of Indian music who have collaborated together since the 1980s. Sharma has enraptured audiences for over 50 years with his mastery of the santoor, a hammered dulcimer admired for its lush, shimmering sounds. A pioneering musician, he was responsible for developing the santoor into an important instrument in the North Indian classical repertoire. Hussain, whose dazzling rhythms have brought him to the forefront of Indian music, has achieved international fame with his inimitable performances. He is the favorite accompanist to India's leading classical musicians and dancers and holds a prominent role in the world music movement.

Venue Description: Home to live events ranging from world music, jazz, gospel, blues, folk, show tunes, political humor, theatre, dance, the critically acclaimed Broadway by the Year, Garrison Keillor's annual holiday residency, and more. Most recently, The Dalai Lama and President Obama have graced the stage. Located in Times Square/the Theater District.
