Event Details

Zakir Hussain, tabla
with Niladri Kumar, sitar
Castle Theater
Thursday, March 21, 2019 – 7:30 PM
Please arrive on time! Late-comers will not be permitted to enter the theater until after the first piece is over.  

Ustad Zakir Hussain is the world’s best known Indian tabla player. Popularly known as the Tabla Maestro, his consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as a national treasure in India, but also earned him worldwide fame.

His playing is marked by uncanny intuition and masterful improvisational dexterity, founded in formidable knowledge and study.

Widely considered a chief architect of the contemporary world music movement, Zakir’s contribution to world music has been unique, with many historic collaborations including John McLaughlin, George Harrison, YoYo Ma, Joe Henderson, Van Morrison, Airto Moreira, Pharoah Sanders, Billy Cobham, Mark Morris, Rennie Harris, and the Kodo drummers.

For his Maui performance, Hussain will be accompanied by sitar virtuoso, Niladri Kumar, an Indian classical and fusion musician. Both are known for experimentation: Kumar designed and sometimes plays an electrified instrument he calls the zitar, and Hussain has often ventured into rock, jazz, and even Western classical music.

Each is grounded in Hindustani musical practice and is the product of venerable dynasties and traditional apprenticeships.

EXPLANATION OF HAWAIIAN LANGUAGE

Written Hawaiian uses two diacritical markings as pronunciation guides:

  • The ‘okina, which is typographically represented as a reversed apostrophe. In spoken Hawaiian, the ‘okina indicates a glottal stop, or clean break between vowels. If your browser supports this display (and it may not, depending on browser type and settings), an ‘okina should look like this: ‘. If browsing conditions do not support this display, you might be seeing a box, a blank space, or odd-looking character instead.
  • The kahako, or macron, which is typographically represented as a bar above the letter, as in ā (again, you will see it correctly only if your browser delivers it correctly). The macron on a vowel indicates increased duration in pronunciation of the vowel that it appears over.

Web browsers sometimes have difficulty reproducing these markings without the use of graphics, special fonts, or special coding. Even correctly authored Web pages that use Unicode coding may be transmitted through a server that displays the symbols incorrectly or the browser may use a replacement font that displays these incorrectly.

Since most browsers can and do display the ASCII grave symbol (‘) as coded, this site uses the grave symbol to represent the ‘okina. We do depict the correct ‘okina on all pages in the title graphic because it is embedded in the graphic and not displayed as text.

The kahako/macron is more problematic. Given the problems with displaying this with current technology, some websites resort to displaying these with diaeresis characters instead, as in ä, which will appear in most browsers (but not all) as an “a” with two dots over it. However, this is not a desirable solution because it doesn’t work uniformly in all browser situations. Until Unicode fonts are more universally displayable, the site reluctantly omits the kahako from most text.
