The 2014-2015 Resident Artistic Director for SFJAZZ in San Francisco, Hussain returns to the Lensic in Santa Fe to present a performance that combines traditional North Indian classical music with flavors of Carnatic music hailing specifically from southern India.

Hussain will be joined by one of India's top Carnatic violin virtuosos, Kumaresh Rajagopalan, known for his brilliant musical interpretations with numerous artists including the dynamic violin duo with his brother Ganesh; and Jayanthi Kumaresh, a renowned master of the veena, a plucked stringed instrument with origins in Pakistan, considered by many to be celestial with ties to ancient times.
