GORO OHMI "Niji Sinden"(synths,recoded in November and December,1983)

淡海悟郎 "虹神殿" (1983)
GORO OHMI "Niji Sinden"(recoded in November and December,1983)

This album was  inspired from a Japanese comic "Niji Shinden"(means "Rainbow Shrine").Goro Ohmi made this album with help of nine gamelan players (including an Indonesian player named Saptana).And other instruments were played by Goro Ohmi.He was interested in prog rock during a college student and made a prog trio "Minotaurus"(from endinig of 1970s to beginning of 1980s),and later became famous for some OST,CM,and so on...
This album has never been released as CD before,but I'm sure that it will be one of the twinkling gems for fans of Kitaro,Tomita,TD,Klaus Schulze,Vangelis.....

The old Zapallo blog (previously El Camaleon) is up and running again after being shut down by Blogger. The new address is : It is quickly being repopulated with great progrock music. Check it out!!

Big fan of Tomita so as soon as I saw his name referenced I was fascinated to hear more...never come across the name Goro Ohmi before so huge thanks for putting him on my radar as the music is just beautiful beyond belief..astonishing no CD issue has been made of this..when I think of the obscure rubbish that gets issued these is almost a crime!

This album is destined to be played by myself for years to come..I can feel it in my bones!
