Tejendra Narayan Majumder and Zakir Hussain are gearing up to commemorate Pt Ravi Shankar’s birth centenary this year. The sarod and tabla duet will take place on February 13.
“We are teaming up after five years. The last time we performed together was in 2015 at Nazrul Mancha. We are really looking forward to it. Zakirji performs in our Swara Samrat festival on a regular basis. He has performed for eight consecutive years,” Tejendra Narayan said.
Last year, Zakir played at his festival that started on December 1. The event will also honour Vijay Kichlu. “We will honour the ace musician from our Shree Ranjani Foundation Trust,” said Tejendra Narayan.
