I’m very pleased to announce that Gonzalo Carrera, the band’s keyboard player on The Gathering Light album, has rejoined KARNATAKA.
Gonzalo is an incredibly gifted musician with a deep appreciation and feel for Karnataka’s music. We enjoyed a great musical partnership during our collaboration on The Gathering Light and we’re looking forward to continuing this on the new material we’ve started work on.
During his time away from the band, Gonzalo has worked with a number of artists including Steve Hackett, Huw Lloyd Langton (Hawkwind), Peter Banks (Yes), John Helliwell (Supertramp), drummer/producer and Grammy award winner Narada Michael Walden and has also been collaborating with Jon Anderson on his Piano Works project.
Gonzalo said “It’s wonderful to be back in Karnataka, it feels like coming home as we’ve always shared a great friendship and musical chemistry, it’s great to be writing music together again”
We’re really excited by the new ideas we’ve started collaborating on – it feels like we have some unfinished business! We’re looking forward to making further announcements soon.
