Led by the impish, sweet-voiced, Greek-born singer and accordionist Magda Giannikou, Banda Magda’s music taps into a wide range of international influences. In addition to Giannikou, voices of band members from Japan and Argentina are heard, making each concert a colorful global experience. With songs sung in French as well as six other languages, Banda Magda forays into Brazilian baião rhythms, Greek dance music, jazz, samba, tango, and more. Called “totally charming” by NPR, the group has a groove that’s as fresh as it is funky.
