All-time great guitar maverick McLaughlin reunites with the greatest living tabla exponent, Zakir, to celebrate their 40-year personal and musical relationship. The duo revisit their delicious fusion of eastern and western music, with help from vocalist Shankar Mahadavan, U. Shrinivas on mandolin and V. Selvaganesh on kanjira, ghatam and mridangam. This is a rare opportunity to witness the staggering interplay between these two masters first hand. Expect blistering, edge-of-your-seat improv and astounding virtuosity.

This event is part of the 2013 London Jazz Festival.

I only have Youtube videos to go from so far, but these guys really understand how to reconfigure the flow of the mind and the body into their musical instruments, taking your soul to the nostalgic locations of another life, of another time, of another you.
