Jinda Biant is a singer-songwriter unlike any other. With most of his early years spent lost in his father’s record collection, with music from the likes of Elvis Presley, to even more legendary artists like Lead Belly and Robert Johnson, Jinda’s influences run deep, deeper than most musicians we’ve seen for some time.
Even before all of this, the first step on his musical journey was into Indian Classical Music, from the Sitar playing of Ravi Shankar & the powerful vocals of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. By the age of ten, Jinda was performing Tabla (Indian Classical Drums) at many venues around Britain. Jinda has loved the journey that music has taken him on ever since.
Nowadays, you’re more likely to hear his passion for music when his bottle neck slide’s howlin’ and his Mississippi stomp box stompin’. He picked up the guitar in his early teens, it was a path less trodden for someone of Jinda’s musical heritage, but it was one he stepped on with a willingness to learn and he followed the Greats that had come before.
So now he finds himself making his own footsteps on his own path, like the musicians he followed. From releasing his Debut album “Restless” last year and then being featured on BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephen’s Show, he’s now playing shows worldwide, promoting his music and collecting stories along the way.
So don’t miss your chance to see the electrifying powerful experience that is Jinda Biant.
