Fleck, Hussain & Meyer: New Album & Fall Tour

Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain & Edgar Meyer
Conjure A New Sound Steeped In Indian Tradition, Chamber Music and American Roots
With An Unprecedented Collaboration The Melody of Rhythm
North American Fall Tour Dates Confirmed

Béla Fleck
On August 25, E1 Music will release The Melody of Rhythm, an impressive collaboration between banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck, composer and double-bass master Edgar Meyer and Zakir Hussain, arguably the world’s greatest tabla player, followed by a 19-city tour of North American concert halls in September and October.

The centerpiece and catalyst for the album is “The Melody of Rhythm: Concerto,” a thoughtful three-movement composition for banjo, double bass and tabla. Recorded live with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Leonard Slatkin, this highly rhythmic work soars, melding Indian classical music with American roots.

Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer will be on tour this Fall in support of The Melody of Rhythm.
