01.May.2009 | "A Theme for the Moon" - Luigi Rubino's solo album
La Nuit des Fées
This is the first splendid album of Ashram’s pianist solo. Crystal notes of piano, nostalgia of violin, grace of Cello brings one into a very intense feeling of emotion, moving & intimist. Like an original soundtrack, the music draws the most peaceful & celestial timeless landscapes one can imagine. Luigi Rubino started playing and studying piano and liturgical organ when he was 10, with both Italian and foreign teachers. Other than being the piano player with the Ashram, Luigi has also collaborated with bands such as Argine, Corde Oblique or Trees. Today he dedicates himself to original composition and loves 20th century classical music (Debussy, Poulenc, Bach, Pergolesi, Rachmaninov, Chopin, Wagner but also Satie, Keith Jarrett, Arvo Part or Morricone).

You can order it on the Discography section now or visit www.myspace.com/luigirubino for samples.

01.May.2006 | Ashram return with a new album and new live shows in Portugal
After a long break, Ashram are back.

Four years after their homonymous debut, the Italian ensemble finally completes their second album, “Shining Silver Skies”, a work which unfolds itself as an exercise in musical bliss and purity, drenched in sweet nostalgia that flickers through memories of aching loss or rapturous passion. The trio is also assisted by guest cellist Leonardo Massa on these recordings, whose contribution brings a discreet additional depth to “Shining Silver Skies”, an album which not only embodies the romantic backdrop of early 1900’s glamour but that also flirts with a slightly naïve Folk spirit occasionally.

The album will be released on Digipak CD with booklet via the Portuguese label Equilibrium Music on the 22nd of May 2006. You may pre-order now at Equilibrium Music's site or directly on this site with PayPal on the Discography section.

Ashram will be returning to Portugal for the third time to perform live in Famalicão (at Casa das Artes) on the 2nd of June 2006 and Lisboa (at Santiago Alquimista) on the 3rd of June 2006.
