Blues/Roots/International

Banda Magda

When: Sat., June 17, 10 p.m. 2017

Fronted by Greek-born, New York-based vocalist, accordionist and composer Magda Giannakou, Banda Magda crafts smooth jet set pop confections, which float on clouds of loungey bossa nova beats and Giannakou’s breathy, French vocals. But there is more to the combo than retro Franco pop and exotica. Greek folk melodies, Peruvian psychedelic cumbias, and the orchestral sweep of Serge Gainsbourg add a soupcon of grit and woozy weirdness to Banda Magda’s international mélange.

Price: $10.
