Catch Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer featuring Rakesh Chaurasia at UCSB’s Campbell Hall

Tabla and bansuri meet acoustic bass and banjo in this musical adventure. On their new album, As We Speak, this one-of-a-kind quartet made up of musicians Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, Edgar Meyer and flautist Rakesh Chaurasia combines the cerebral complexity of Indian ragas with the gut-level groove of a funky bass line. In concert, they fulfill the promise of the album’s title with brilliant performances that strike an exquisite balance between compositional rigor and conversational improvisation.
