Zakir Hussain is the greatest living exponent of the tabla. Starting as a child prodigy playing traditional music, Zakir expanded the scope of his instrument through his experiments with Indian and Western idioms. THE SPEAKING HAND is the most in-depth record of this living legend at his prime. Features archival concert footage and rare interviews with legends of Indian Classical and World Music including Ustad Alla Rakha, Ravi Shankar, and Mickey Hart. “The film stays on long after the sounds die out and the images fade from the screen.” – Kavita Panjabi, Economic Times
