HIFA 2-7 May

Banda Magda

Music • Tickets: $10.00

Led by Greek-born singer, accordionist, film scorer and composer Magda Giannikou, Banda Magda moves from baiao to jazz manouche, from Greek dance rhythms to samba beats. Their songs, sung in French (with forays into six other languages), hearken back to the golden age of Brazilian bossa, the best of cinematic arranging, and the lush chic of vintage French pop, all while drawing on the band’s global background.

Live, Banda Magda bursts with humor and quirky sensibility, powered by an unflagging energy. They have toured more than 22 countries and 5 continents. Close musical friends, the band turn Giannikou’s songs into engaging romps that have caught the attention of everyone from Kronos Quartet to Snarky Puppy and led to performances at venues and events including Carnegie Hall, WOMAD, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Vancouver Jazz Festival, Apollo Hammersmith and The Kennedy Center as well as multiple album releases.


An unmissable Main Stage performance by an astonishing international group of musicians.
