Ostad Abbos Kosimov

Los Angeles premieres


Awarded the title of Honored Artist of Uzbekistan in his homeland, Ostad Abbos Kosimov is recognized globally as a master of the doyra frame drum and an ambassador of Uzbek culture. Since his arrival in the U.S. in 2005, he has worked with such artists and ensembles as Stevie Wonder, Kronos Quartet, Zakir Hussain, Giovanni Hidalgo, Terry Bozzio, Hands On’Semble, and Omar Sosa. For this rare opportunity to hear Uzbekistan’s most dynamic doyra artist in concert, Kosimov has crafted an evening of traditional Uzbek and Tajik percussion music and dance, along with his own original compositions. He is joined by the CalArts Persian and World Percussion Ensembles, and members of his own Abbos Ensemble, which features Zuhriddin Faparov on doyra and traditional Central Asian dance from Tara Pandeya.
