PINK MARTINI – the unusual orchestra!
02.10.2013, Maria Jagerova
Famous American band Pink Martini is coming for the first time to perform in Prague!
The band’s music crosses many genres starting from classical music to latino, jazz or classical pop: the main motto of Pink Martini is that their music is truly international and beautifully catchy. Pink Martini came into being in Portland, Oregon as a project of pianist Thomas Lauderdale who was involved with the politics at the time. He was unhappy about the state of fundraiser and charitable events’ music which he deemed unclassy and kitchy, and he decided to establish his own ‘little orchestra’ that would play quality music. Together with his friend China Forbes they started writing compositions and their first single “Sympathique” became an overnight sensation in France. The lead singer Forbes sings in more than 15 world languages!
Pink Martini’s quality is undeniable: their singles are to be heard in various films (Mr. & Mrs. Smith), TV series (Sopranos) or advertisements (Microsoft). Albums and compositions of Pink Martini often rock various world charts, sometimes hitting one country more than the others given the language it is sung in.
Come and enjoy a lovely evening of dance rhythms!
