Tabla maestro Zakir Hussain says he supports reality shows on TV as they promote musical understanding and make classical music popular. Hussain also told the media after a show in Agra on Wednesday evening that he was conserving the "heritage of Amir Khusro" and promoting Sufi music.
He said he was elated he had performed in the Taj city. "Taj mohabbat ki daastaan kahta hai."
Just 500 metres from the 17th century monument of love, hundreds of music lovers enjoyed Hussain's show. Hussain said he was indeed lucky to be presenting a programme in such a beautiful setting against the backdrop of the Taj Mahal.
