Artist Biography by

World fusion guitarist and composer Anthony Hindson was born in London, and began playing music at age seven. During the 1970s he tenured with a series of prog-rock bands, but while visiting California he attended a live performance by sarode master Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and was so profoundly impacted that he immediately relocated to India to study guitar and Indian classical music under Khan's auspices. Hindson went on to perform in Khan's orchestra, and in 1993 appeared on the album Garden of Dreams; in between he also studied tabla and rhythm with Zakir Hussain, and also backed the renowned violinist L. Subramaniam on a pair of LPs, 1983's Indian Express and the following year's Conversations. Hindson's 1999 release It's a Curious Life featured contributions from friends including bassist Jack Bruce, violinist Shankar and the late drummer Tony Williams.
