Banda Magda w/ Gentleman Brawlers
Sharing the same label and many collaborators as Snarky Puppy, Banda Magda is the Greek-French-Latin-fusion ensemble of a lifetime. Founded by Greek-born singer, film scorer, and composer Magda Giannikou, Banda Magda moves from samba to French chanson, from Greek folk tunes to Colombian cumbia and Afro-Peruvian lando. Their songs capture the best of mid-century pop ballads and cinematic arranging, drawing on the band’s global background and unchained musicality. Giannikou’s music has won her awards and caught the attention of everyone from Kronos Quartet to Louis CK (she sang a duet with CK for the comedian’s TV show). Seriously, if you miss this show you will have mad regrets.
