Juno award-winning composer, guitarist, and oudist, Gordon Grdina has never been about staying in one style of music. His roots may be in western jazz, but even early on in his career, the free-thinking artist always had an interest in world, Arabic, and Indian music. “I’ve always been about embracing all of the different dynamics in music that I love and not dogmatically playing one style,” Grdina says. This musical philosophy encouraged him to put time aside for more than six musical endeavors, the three most popular being his 10-piece avant-Arabic improv group. Haram his experimental free punk project, Peregrine Falls and his free jazz group Gordon Grdina New York Quartet.
