"ESPIRAL" is the debut album of Nuno Silva, an established musician from Oporto Portugal.
Taking a deep and serious influence in the modal musical cultures of middle eastern countries, he merges those with his own musical visions, composes and records energetic music with compelling and full arrangements. Being a multi-instrumentalist, his songs feature an array of several less common instruments, carefully put together, giving life to original and powerful compositions.
