Banda Magda Brings South American Rhythms to Weinberg Center Stage

EntSun News/10768597
FREDERICK, Md. - March 13, 2019 - EntSun -- The Tivoli Discovery Series presents a global romp through South American rhythms, jazz improvisation, and songs in six languages when Banda Magda comes to the Weinberg Center for the Arts on Thursday, April 4th at 7:30 PM

This is a pay-what-you-want event with a suggested ticket price of $10. Tickets may be purchased online at WeinbergCenter.org, by calling the Box Office at 301-600-2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick Street.

Banda Magda combines jazz improvisation, cinematic arranging, sophisticated audience participation, mid-century classics and world "chansons" sung in six different languages. The band's sound is equally as diverse as the musicians themselves who hail from Greece, Argentina, Japan, Colombia and the United States. Magda Giannikou, a Greek-born composer, orchestrator, singer and accordionist, leads the group which she founded in 2010.

Perhaps J&R Music World put it best with this review: "Banda Magda's music is polished to a high pop sheen, but beneath the glossy surface the beats veer off in unexpected directions. American swing, bossa nova, gypsy jazz, soca, tango and cinematic string charts collide with Middle Eastern and Latin rhythms for tunes that will leave your brain delightfully confused." The group has toured in more than 22 countries and five continents, playing at discerning venues and festivals such as The Kennedy Center, Vancouver Jazz Festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall and many more.
