Musical Maestros Triumph: Mahadevan & Hussain Win Big with Shakti's 'This Moment' at 2024 Grammys

Indian tabla maestro Zakir Hussain and singer-composer Shankar Mahadevan secured the Grammy in the Best Global Music Album category for their fusion band Shakti’s 2023 studio album, “This Moment.” Additionally, Zakir Hussain won another award in the Best Global Music Performance category for the song “Pashto,” collaborating with Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer, and Rakesh Chaurasia.

In an image posted by the Grammys on their official X (formerly known as Twitter) account, Mahadevan and fellow band member Ganesh Rajagopalan are captured receiving the award on stage. The caption in the post reads, “Congratulations to Best Global Music Album winner – ‘This Moment’ Shakti. #GRAMMYs.”

In a heartfelt acceptance, Mahadevan expressed, “Gratitude to the divine, my cherished family, friends, and our beloved India—we stand proud. Last but certainly not least, I extend this award as a dedication to my wife, the muse behind every musical note I craft.”

Released on June 30 of the previous year, the album ‘This Moment’ comprises eight tracks crafted by an ensemble including John McLaughlin (guitar synth), Zakir Hussain (tabla), Shankar Mahadevan (vocalist), V Selvaganesh (percussionist), and Ganesh Rajagopalan (violinist).

In parallel, Zakir Hussain clinched the ‘Best Global Music Performance’ Grammy for his impactful involvement in ‘Pashto,’ a collaboration with Béla Fleck and Edgar Meyer, featuring the virtuoso flute player Rakesh Chaurasia. Remarkably, Hussain notched up three Grammy victories in a single night, while Chaurasia garnered two well-deserved awards.

In the bustling city of Los Angeles, the 66th installment of the annual Grammy Awards for the year 2024 is currently unfolding its grandeur.
