On being asked about playing with Guthrie Govan himself this time, this is what Gino had to say:
“I feel very honoured and privileged to be playing with one of the greatest electric guitar players in the world. His music appeals to me very much. It’s progressive, melodic and has some sick stuff going on which is very exciting. There is lot of room for improvisation and spontaneous interaction between 3 of us. Musically, it is really my comfort zone as it involves all the energy and vibe of what I love to do in my playing and approach. Having Mohini on bass is great and she is a huge talent for us in India. It will be a great experience.”
