“World Citizen” - A combination of words serving as the unifying theme for all the tracks that complete this exotic, rich and soulful album.
Recorded in the scope of over four years at several locations worldwide, with a wide array of musical influences and guest musicians, World Citizen is an untamed journey through the musical mind of Marinho Nobre. With accents of Middle Eastern, Latin, Indian, Celtic and Aboriginal meeting Classical and Urban beats, “World Citizen” evokes many musical cultures blending them into one big celebration. This is an album that will captivate the listener and will imply it to be played over and over again...
