Born and raised to Indian immigrant parents in Los Angeles, J.Hind (born as Dinesh Sharma)was introduced to the American streets at a young age while his parents were busy working multiple jobs. Strongly influenced by his own Indian roots he always viewed his surroundings from two perspectives; his east Indian influences and the lifestyle he immersed himself in America daily. These two cultural influences mixed with J’s early love of poetry and hip hop eventually combined and found they’re way into our ears through J.Hind’s storytelling music.
From an early age J.Hind was destined for a life of music. He toured the world internationally from the age of 5 performing Qawali shows with his grandfather’s group.
