6:00 PM–9:00 PM

Spiral Music presents acoustic music every Wednesday evening at the base of the Museum’s spiral staircase. This week Max ZT, dubbed “the Jimi Hendrix of hammered dulcimer,” is invited to forge a connection between his music and the art in the galleries.


About the Musician

Lauded as the “Jimi Hendrix of Hammered Dulcimer” by NPR and a “force of nature” by NY Music Daily, Max ZT is an innovator on his instrument. With roots in classical Irish folk music, Max ZT has transplanted his compositional techniques to both Senegal, where he studied the Mandinko technique with the Cissoko Griot family, and Mumbai, India, where he studied under the great santoor master Pandit Shivkumar Sharma.
