Though his performance was not as buzzing and celebrated as Priyanka glamorous appearance, Hussain tweeted his picture with a humble caption “performing at White House”. The picture was later captioned “Incredible” by music composer Salim Merchant of the Salim-Suleiman fame when he retweeted the same.

After Priyanka Chopra, Hussain became another famous face of Indian Arts and Culture to be invited at the Obamas’ residence.he performance is sure to have mesmerized the audiences with his magical art in playing table like Priyanka Chopra’s much talked about attire and style. Although the picture did not seem to have caught a lot of attention, many people in their comments requested the artist to post a few video clips of the performance.
Since Zakir Hussain has not been in the lime light for a long time, this picture definitely asserts the famous saying of working hard in silence and letting the success make its noise. Away from the shutter bugs, Hussain has always attempted and explored new realms of his art and taken to a pedestal that not too many achieve. Hussain has been residing and performing at various places, abroad, this was performance was indeed an added feather to his hat. Not only was his performance a contributing factor in the Indo US friendship, it is emblematic of the power of music that is spread across and ahead of physical geographical racial and regional horizons. Also, when India is excitedly bridging the gap between itself and the United States, Bollywood is definitely acting as a catalyst to make the friendship rich.
We crave and hope to see more of our divas lighting up the White House in the near future. Who do you think should be the next?
