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