Tender Warriors

Tender Warriors

On Charles Lloyd’s live trio outing Sangam, the multi-instrumentalist is joined by legendary tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain and percussionist Eric Harland for a session that carves gentle melodies out of numerous percussive sonorities. Check out the opening of the aptly named composition “Tender Warriors” and enter a bizarre musical landscape where the entire world seems to be singing, albeit a melody that is not exactly hummable.
