50th Anniversary Tour
Featuring John McLaughlin & Zakir Hussain
with very special guest Béla Fleck

Gates Open:
6 PM

7:30 PM

Shakti, the revolutionary ensemble co-founded by British guitarist John McLaughlin and master Indian percussionist Zakir Hussain, continues to defy musical and cultural boundaries with their 50th anniversary tour. The quintet’s seamless hybrid of Eastern and Western musical traditions is created through the dazzling, telepathic interplay of McLaughlin, Hussain, vocalist Shankar Mahadevan, violinist Ganesh Rajagopalan, and percussionist Selvaganesh Vinayakram.
Grammy award-winning banjo visionary Béla Fleck hits the stage first to heat up the night.
