VAF Fringe: Banda Magda

Drawing on its members’ global backgrounds (Greece, Argentina, Japan, Colombia, USA), Banda Magda whips up South American rhythms, jazz improvisation, cinematic arranging, sophisticated audience participation, and songs sung directly to your soul in six languages. “Endlessly charming…The wildly charismatic Magda (her sensual, knotted English could charm a stuck bull) began the set with a slithering ethno-gypsy number that sounded like Beirut doing tango. From space odyssey guitar to a flurry of Rhodes piano play, Magda and her Banda put on a rhythmically illustrious show that was nothing short of inspirational” (Dallas Observer).
