Banda Magda

Sunday, April 14, 2019, 9:30-11:00pm

Led by Greek-born composer, orchestrator, singer and accordionist Magda Giannikou (Kronos Quartet, Louis CK), 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, USA), the group combines South American rhythms with jazz improvisation, cinematic arranging, sophisticated audience participation, mid-century classics, and world “chansons” sung in 6 languages.

Banda Magda is part of the Onassis Festival 2019: Democracy Is Coming, co-presented by Onassis USA and The Public Theater.
