Spiral Music presents acoustic music every Wednesday evening at the base of the Museum’s spiral staircase. Artists who specialize in music from the Himalayas and South Asia are invited to forge a connection between their music and the art in the galleries.
About the Musician
Max ZT (dulcimer), lauded as the “Jimi Hendrix of Hammered Dulcimer” by NPR and a “force of nature” by NY Music Daily, is an innovator on his instrument. Taking his roots from 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 to Mumbai, India, where he received a grant to study under the great santoor master Pandit Shivkumar Sharma.
