Kochi Biennale Foundation was deeply saddened to hear that John Anthony, one of the pioneers of Karnatic fusion music and guitar virtuoso, is no more. He made his name as a guitarist par excellence in the film music world in Chennai (where he worked with music directors like Shyam, Johnson and A.R. Rahman amongst many others), and with several legends of the Karnatic world. John and his band Karnatriix struck a fine chord. Their chartbuster debut album Namaste went into three editions. John was a huge supporter of Kochi-Muziris Biennale and we remember his jamming every evening during the first edition. We miss you, John.
