Robert Bloemkolk Found out about this through a six CD release which contains the complete output by this obscure Italian band. Decided to buy this download to check them out. Amazing stuff. Combines prog, ambient, opera, you name it. Really unique. What a find. Favorite track: I Graffiti di Orione e delle Pleiadi (Dedicated to Henri Lhote).

    For TRS054 we are extremely excited to bring you what is our first re-release. This is an absolutely lovely, and criminally under heard beauty from Italian group, The Doubling Riders, entitled “Garama”. Originally released in 1991 on the fantastic, Italian Il Museo Immaginario label, this is a wonderfully evocative album of old school, synth infused ethno-ambiance of the highest caliber. A concept album of sorts, it references the ancient Saharan kingdom of the Garamantes, who lived in what is now central Libya. Eerie, melodic, mysterious…please discover the wonder of Garama for yourself after all these years...
