World Citizens

Welcome to the home of rhythm, and joy! 🎉🎶

Do you remember those legendary nights, dancing under the stars to the infectious beats of Hottentot Party* at iconic venues like The Rails & the  Beach Hotel in Byron Bay, and the magical Woodford and Port Fairy Festivals? The energy, the vibe—it's time to bring that euphoria back, and this time, we're cranking up the joy to eleven!

Allow me to introduce you to Parissa Bouas & The World Citizens! 🌍🎶 We're not just a band; we're a whirlwind of happiness set to a beat. Picture a fusion of funky rhythms, soulful melodies, and irresistible hooks, delivered by a dream team of musical virtuosos plucked from around the globe.

From my glory days with Carl Cleves in the band formerly known as The Hottentots* to the magic of Diaspora Latina and Bella Fontes, the journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. And now, I’m ready to share that joy with you.

Our sound? It's like sunshine in your ears—jazzy vibes mingling with Calypso beats, Brazilian rhythms dancing with SKA vibes, and Neo Soul grooves grooving alongside Roots reggae. 

With seven  award winning albums, international tours spanning Australia, Europe, and Brazil, and a reputation that precedes me, we're not just bringing music; we're bringing a celebration in song.

So, what do you say? Are you ready to unleash the energy, and create some unforgettable moments together? Let's make it a party to remember!


(*No insult intended to the Khoisai people, but this was our band name before it changed into a bad meaning, and it's no longer used)
