I had the honor of attending the Zakir Hussain concert this past Saturday evening at the Marin Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in San Rafael. The last time I had tickets to see Zakir Hussain was with the Shakti re-union tour in November of 2000. We had a family emergency in route to the concert so we missed that show. 9 Years later and my patience was rewarded as I was seated in the 2nd row, center and was taken on a two hour journey. Highly recommended as he’s still on tour and what looks to be some amazing line-ups.
