Playlist: Nomade Orquestra

We discovered them almost one year ago thanks to their debut album and it was love at first listen. That’s why, a few weeks after the release of their second work (Entremundos) and a few days before their second UK tour (with a stop-over at London’s Jazz Café on the...

Instead,...
