Teymour Housego

Teymour grew up in India and learnt the bansuri under Prakash Saxena in Delhi and Pandit Ronu Majumdar in Mumbai. After leaving school, he went to study at the Gandharva Mahavidyalaya in New Delhi under his guru Shri Prakash Saxena and then moved to London where he has lived ever since. He learnt to combine jazz music with his Indian background and open to other music styles.

Besides regular Hindustani classical performances, he has collaborated with Nitin Sawhney, Talvin Singh, Jethro Tull, Jay Sean, ShivaNova and the Bombay Dub Orchestra amongst others and  has performed extensively in the UK (including BBC radio and TV), France, Germany, Poland, Luxembourg, Portugal and India. His latest album Haunting Bazaar, a sublime collection of transcultural songs and vocally-infused instrumental pieces, was described by the Financial Times as ‘fusion at its most successful'.  Available to purchase on iTunes and Amazon or to stream on Spotify. 

Teymour also co-founded the flamenco fusion group Alcazaba, whose debut album was released by Universal in 2009, and has been featured prominently on several other acclaimed albums including Decca/Universal Records' The Gyuto Monks of Tibet – Chants - The Spirit of Tibet, Niraj Chag's Along the Dusty Road, Shivanova's Secret Chants and Yves Mesnil's Intentions.
