Ken Hyder is a London-based freelance Home Affairs correspondent specialising in policing, drugs, and race for a range of national daily and Sunday newspapers.
He is also an cutting-edge musician who has made over 30 albums, starting with five albums fusing jazz with the music of his home country, Scotland, latterly collaborating with folk-based musicians from quite differing backgrounds - Tibetan and Japanese monks, Siberian shamans, South American and South African musicians.
In 1990 - with another player - he did the biggest tour of Russia by any British musician up till then. They played throughout the country from Leningrad to Vladivostok.
Later, Ken began studying shamanic music in Yakutia, Buryatia, the Altai and Tuva in Siberia. He performs and records with a shaman from Tuva, and that connection made it much easier for him to gain the confidence of local shamans who were very generous with the information they passed on.
