Banda Magda

   Founded by Greek-born singer, film scorer, and composer Magda Giannikou, Banda Magda moves from samba to French chanson, from Greek folk tunes to Colombian cumbia and Afro-Peruvian lando. Their songs capture the best of mid-century pop ballads and cinematic arranging, drawing on the band’s global background and unchained musicality. Trained in film scoring at Berklee, Giannikou’s film music finesse has won her awards and caught the attention of everyone from Kronos Quartet to Louis CK (she sang a duet with CK for the comedian’s TV show).
   Live, Banda Magda bursts with humor and quirky sensibility, powered by a unflagging energy. This group of close musical friends turn Giannikou’s songs into engaging romps that have won them a spot with Carnegie Hall Musical Explorers Series, as well as performances at discerning venues and festivals such as Webster Hall, Irving Plaza, The Kennedy Center, The Jefferson Center, Celebrate Brooklyn, Jazz al Parque, St. Moritz Festival Da Jazz, and the Chicago World Music Festival.
   After the success of their brilliantly colorful debut album, Amour, t’es là? (Top 10 Billboard World Music Charts, NPR’s All Songs Considered, First Listen, NPR’s 10 favorite World Music Albums 2013), the Banda is back with Yerakina (on Ropeadope/groundUP; release: September 2014). The album, co-produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Michael League (Snarky Puppy) and GRAMMY Award-nominee Fab Dupont (Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Bebel Gilberto), shows the next step in the Banda’s devotion to their craft and their sound, featuring Technicolor folk songs and pop chestnuts played with dynamic finesse.

Banda Magda's Yerakina appeared at #2 on the iTunes World Charts.

Banda Magda's Amour, t’es là? was featured on NPR and PRI's GLOBAL HIT.

On August 8th, 2013 it appeared at #9 on the Billboard World Music Charts.

On August 30th, 2013 the official music video of the track "Ce Soir" was premiered at NPR's All Songs Considered.

On December 17th, 2013 it made NPR's TOP 10 World Music albums.

Magda Giannikou's songs Amour, t’es là? and Ase Na Bo were part of the GRAMMY Award Winning Album "Snarky Puppy Family Dinner, Volume 1" with videos of the two songs having reached 210,000 and 60,000 hits respectively.

Banda Magda's Second Album is set to be released in September 2014. The album is a compilation of re-imagined folk songs and mid-century classics in 5 different languages (Greek, Portugese, Spanish, French and Italian). It is being co-produced by three-time Grammy Award Nominee Fab Dupont and recent Grammy Award Winner Michael League.
