Teymour Housego grew up in New Delhi learning the bansuri. His guru Shri Prakash Saxena was the head of instrumental music at the Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, where Teymour graduated with a B.Mus having achieved the highest score in his year. After a brief stint studying jazz in Paris, he moved to London in his early twenties. Teymour nevertheless returned to India on several occasions to continue his training both with Shri Saxena, and more recently with the preeminent bansuri maestro Pandit Ronu Majumdar, for which he received a grant from Milapfest.
Besides his Hindustani classical performances, Teymour has collaborated with Nitin Sawhney, Talvin Singh, Jethro Tull, Jay Sean, ShivaNova and the Bombay Dub Orchestra amongst others. He also co-founded the flamenco fusion group Alcazaba whose debut album was released by Universal in July 2009 to much critical acclaim. 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’. He has also been featured prominently on several other acclaimed albums and film scores including Niraj Chag's 'Along the Dusty Road', Shivanova's 'Secret Chants' and the IMAX film Sea Monsters.
Teymour has performed extensively in the UK, France, Germany, Poland, Luxembourg, Portugal and India and has taught Indian music workshops in schools throughout the UK and Le Havre (France).
