Led by Greek-born composer orchestrator, singer, and accordionist Magda Giannikou, Banda Magda draws on the band’s global background from Greece, Argentina, Japan, Colombia, and the United States. Moving from samba to French chanson, Greek folk tunes to Colombian cumbia, and Afro-Peruvian lando the group combines South American rhythms with jazz improvisation, cinematic arranging, sophisticated audience participation, mid-century classics, and world “chansons” sung in six languages. Arrive early for a pre-performance discussion with Banda Magda, led by WCVE Music Jazz host Peter Solomon at 6:30 p.m.
