      “An artist who fires on all artistic cylinders.” –NPR

      Greek-born singer, accordionist, film scorer and composer Magda Giannikou is a musical chameleon who breezes through everything from French-Brazilian hybrids to collaborations with the Kronos Quartet and Snarky Puppy, Greek folk tunes and Columbian cumbia. But in each style or language she and her energetic and incredibly tight-knit New York-based band excel and mesmerize audiences with their brilliantly coloured performances. 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. Together, these close musical friends turn Giannikou’s songs into engaging romps that have won them a spot with Carnegie Hall Musical Explorers Series, as well discerning venues and festivals like Celebrate Brooklyn, Millenium Stage-Kennedy Center, St Moritz Festival Da Jazz, the Chicago World Music Festival and more. Featuring Magda Giannikou – Vocals, accordion, Ignacio Hernandez – Guitar Andres Rotmistrovsky – Bass
