Album Notes
Shahbaz Hussain is fast emerging as one of the most promising Tabla virtuosos of his generation.

Born in 1979, Shahbaz began learning Tabla at the age of 5 under the watchful eye of his father, the late Ustad Mumtaz Hussain - a prominent vocalist. He later went on to study with Tabla legends Ustad Faiyaz Khan from the Delhi Gharana (school), the late Ustad Shaukat Hussain Khan from the Punjab Gharana and finally the late Ustad Allah Rakha Khan.

He has played with many of the great master musicians of India and Pakistan, including Ustad Imrat Khan, Ustad Nishat Khan, Ustad Salamat Ali Khan, Ustad Fateh Ali Khan and Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan to name only a few. He has played in some of the most prestigious venues and festivals around the world, including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C., Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, Lincoln Center in New York and the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.

Shahbaz has achieved a tremendous amount of recognition at a very young age. He is an extremely versatile Tabla player who holds all the imperative traditional skills as well as the ability to project those skills to more contemporary styles. His solo performances have gained great recognition all over the world.

Shahbaz is also a dedicated teacher of the Tabla. He delivers regular teaching to young people and adults in universities and educational establishments around the globe.

Solo Tabla
I have heard this CD and i think its the best CD of a Tabla solo done by a member of the younger generation.

It really takes you back to when real tabla solos were at their peak with their haunting lehras and majestic tabla playing. A true display of what can be achieved by sheer hard work and dedication.
A must for any music lover

This cd is amazing. Such mastery at such a young age. I wish him success. Great music.

Shahbaz Hussain is my favourite Tabla player. I have invited him several times to the Tehzeeb Festival - Karachi to perform solo as well as accompaniment. I wish him best of luck!
