Tune in this Sunday, August 25th to our weekly show "Raag Aur Tal" featuring the Hammered Dulcimer virtuoso Max ZT! Max will be joining us on the second half of the show from 8 to 9pm. Lauded as the “Jimi Hendrix of Hammered Dulcimer” by NPR, and a "Force of nature" by NY Music Daily, Max ZT is an innovator of the instrument. Taking his roots from classical Irish folk music, Max has transplanted his compositional techniques to both Senegal, where he studied the Mandinko technique with the Cissoko griot family, and to Mumbai, India, where he received a grant to study under the great santoor master Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. Max has enlivened the conceptual framework of traditional folk music by fusing multi-cultural roots and traditions to create a truly compelling sound.
