Story of a legend

Documentary film

The storyline of the film goes thus — The son of the tabla legend Ustad Alla Rakha, Ustad Zakir Hussain began his performing career as child prodigy. Later, through path-breaking experiments, he dramatically enlarged the scope of his chosen instrument. Today, he is celebrated internationally as composer and a star performer.

The Speaking Hand charts Zakir’s growth from the bylanes of Bombay to his current fame as a world musician. We see him perform with the many legends of the Indian classical world. We hear him explain the intricacies of the table. And we get rare glimpses of the planet drum tour that brought together master drummers of the world in a breath taking celebration of the world rhythms. For details, call 9008890088.
