Begin with the most creative exponent of the banjo in our time, Béla Fleck.  Add the greatest living player of the tabla, the legendary drums—and drummer—of India, Zakir Hussain.  Establish the trio with the acclaimed virtuoso of the classical (and bluegrass!) bass, Edgar Meyer.  Combine with a special guest, the great Indian flautist Rakesh Chaurasia.  Then finish the ensemble with the magic of improvisation.  The results will be some of the most remarkable music anyone will hear this year. 

The trio came together a decade ago and created The Melody of Rhythm, a truly elegant release.  Fantastically busy musicians—each of them work with multiple ensembles—they came together from time to time, frequently joined by Mr. Chaurasia, until finally the stars aligned and they found room to schedule another tour, this October in the Midwest and West.  We promise that it will be worth the wait.
