Led by Greek-born composer and Berklee grad, orchestrator, singer, and accordionist Magda Giannikou (Kronos Quartet, Louie), Banda Magda moves from samba to French chanson, from Greek folk tunes to Colombian cumbia and Afro Peruvian lando. Drawing on the band’s global background (Greece, Argentina, Japan, Colombia, and the US), the group combines South American rhythms with jazz improvisation, cinematic arranging, sophisticated audience participation, mid-century classics, and world chansons sung in six languages.
