Alonzo King LINES Ballet performs Rasa, with live tabla music by Zakir Hussain and Kala Ramnath.

The original score by tabla virtuoso Hussain, was called “an intriguing wonder” by the New York Times. Rasa is both a continuation of a deep Indian tradition–the interdependence of dance and tabla music as art forms–and an expression of the contemporary global vision of both Hussain and LINES Ballet.

Recorded in Fall 2014 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
