This collaborative performance between tabla percussionist Zakir Hussain and distinguished bassist Dave Holland is the perfect launch pad for understanding the fundamentals of jazz music.

This class is designed with the jazz newcomer (and future jazz fan!) in mind, and explores the history of jazz and its profound impact on modern music, from improvisation to inversions to the genre’s intersections with Indian musical traditions.

After class, participants will attend the concert with Zakir Hussain and Dave Holland with a program entitled Crosscurrents, which traces the many directions of inspiration between the idioms of jazz and Indian music.

The instructors for this class are members of Sumkali, a diverse group made up of musicians from North and South India and the American Midwest. Their music is a thrilling meld of Indian classical music, Bollywood, American jazz, folk, funk and Motown. They have recorded 4 albums including their 2015 release “Tihai” which earned them two nominations for “Outstanding World Music Album” and “People’s Choice Award” at the Detroit Music Awards in 2016.

To participate in UMS 101, you must register through the Rec & Ed website and pay the registration fee (which includes a ticket to the performance).

This event is part of a new collaboration between UMS and Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education & Recreation (“Rec & Ed”).

UMS and Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education & Recreation (“Rec & Ed”) are teaming up to offer pre-performance classes created especially for first-time UMS attendees, for curious audience members, and for anyone who simply enjoys attending performances with a group.

The classes will bring you together with other audience members who are curious about the performing arts and want to learn more.

Registration for UMS 101 includes a ticket to the performance, workshop fees, transportation to/from the performance venue, and light snacks before the performance.
