During the past decade, Gorn has often performed in India, appearing at Bharat Bhavan in Bhopal, Triveni Hall in New Delhi, the Sangeet Research Academy in Kolkata, the National Centre for the Performing Arts, the Nehru Centre in Mumbai and numerous other venues. His performance with Pandit Ravi Shankar’s disciple Barun Kumar Pal at Kolkata’s Ramakrishna Mission was televised throughout India.
Gorn’s numerous recordings include “Luminous Ragas”; the landmark Indian-jazz fusion recording “Asian Journal”; and “Pranam,” a jugalbandi with Barun Kumar Pal playing hansaveena and Samir Chatterjee on tabla. His latest recording is “Rasika,” with tabla by Chatterjee.
