Listen: East Meets West Playlist

Despite the geographical distance and a chronological separation spanning many centuries, ancient forms originating with Udgatar priests in 1500 BC and the African-American musical inventions of the early 20th century would eventually meet and build upon their common ground.

The East Meets West playlist below highlights some of the most influential of these collaborations. For additional context, read "East Meets West: Indian Classical Music and Jazz."

SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director Zakir Hussain presents "East Meets West" featuring Amit Chatterjee, Louiz Banks, Shankar Mahadevan, Chris Potter, Dave Holland and Eric Harland on October 1 and 2, and with Dave Holland and drummer Vinnie Colaiuta on October 3 and 4. More information.
