Banda Magda
Banda Magda
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.
Founded in 2010 in New York, Banda Magda has toured in more than 22 countries and 5 continents. This group of close musical friends turn Giannikou’s songs into engaging romps that have won them a spot with Carnegie Hall Musical Explorers Series, Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner Vol.1 as well as performances at discerning venues and festivals such as WOMAD, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Vancouver Jazz Festival, L’Olympia, Jazz à Vienne, Canarias Jazz, Apollo Hammersmith, The Kennedy Center, Kathmandu Jazz Festival and many more. After their debut album “Amour, t’es là?” and sophomore “Yerakina”, Banda Magda is releasing its 3rd opus, the vibrant, Technicolor “Tigre” on September 15, 2017 on groundUP / Verve Label Group.

French lyrics over Latin American rhythmes and a spice of jazz! Chef d'Orchestre Magda Gianikou will be leading Banda Magda into the release of their first album in Spring 2012.
Magda met vibraphonist Mika Mimura in a basement surrounded marimbas, vibraphones and timpani.
Magda met Marcelo Woloski at a concert. He was playing the pandeiro and smiling constantly.
Magda met Nacho Hernandez in a hallway. He was carrying his guitar and his mate.
Magda met Petros Klampanis a number of times until she finally got to meet him.
