As We Speak:  Featuring  Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, Edgar Meyer, featuring Rakesh Chaurasia
Saturday November 18, 2023 At Royce Hall 8PM

“Borders blur when Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer make music magic” — San Diego Union Tribune

Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, and Edgar Meyer are virtuoso musicians and collaborators from three entirely different musical realms — bluegrass for Fleck, Indian classical music for Hussain, and Western classical music for Meyer. Sharing a gift for improvisation, they reach across musical genres as casually as neighbors might chat over a backyard fence.

Their latest collaboration, As We Speak showcases the group’s breathtaking versatility as instrumentalists — gliding easily between the cerebral complexity of Indian rhythm, the gut-level groove of a funky bass line, and the rigors of raga. Rakesh Chaurasia, a young master of the bansuri, an Indian bamboo flute, joins the group, adding to the magic.
