Zakir Hussain says
The beautiful and flowing melodies of Celtic instruments including bodhran, violin, pipes, flutes and whistles, combine with tabla, bamboo flute and Carnatic (South Indian) violin to create a powerful and organic musical experience. Come experience this groundbreaking ensemble on its first tour of North America.

Zakir Hussain, Tabla • Rakesh Chaurasia, Bamboo Flute • Fraser Fifield, Flute/Pipes • Jean-Michel Veillon, Flute • Ganesh Rajagopalan, Violin • Charlie McKerron, Fiddle • Patsy Reid, Fiddle • Tony Byrne, Guitar • John Joe Kelly, Bodhran

It’s a jam band with a touch of the highlands when Indian ragas meet Scottish strathspeys for The Pulse of the World, an evening of irresistible rhythms with Zakir Hussain - the reigning tabla master who has played with everyone from George Harrison to the Grateful Dead - laying down beats for Scottish fiddlers Charlie McKerron (of Capercaillie fame) and Patsy Reid (formerly of the fiery band Breabach), and Ganesh Rajagopalan, a master violinist of the classical Indian Carnatic style. The Pulse of the World is a freewheeling, pulse-quickening, constantly surprising fusion of Indian and Celtic sounds.
