‘Tigre’ is the latest album from BANDA MAGDA, the musical brainchild of MAGDA GIANNIKOU, the Greek-born composer and multi instrumentalist who now works chiefly out of New York City.
The 12 tracker that is ‘Tigre’ melds Magda’s signature sounds (Latin and Greek roots music) into a luxuriant, cinematic soundscape… Ms G studied Film Scoring at Berklee Music College… and it shows. Hear her sound at its best on the lovely, gentle ‘Chanson Lev’ – shades of classic Audrey Hepburn films!
Ms G says that, “‘Tigre” is a vessel of many things… the need to share my own fears to my fans, the work that we do as a band melding global musical traditions, my passion for string writing, my duty to be involved in education and communities”.
Makeup your own minds when the album is released on September 15th
