Sydney Festival Presents

Pink Martini

Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 08 January 2008

Under the direction of pianist Thomas M. Lauderdale, this supremely talented 12-piece from Portland, Oregon have been mining the melodies and rhythms of musical traditions the world over in their quest for the delicious and distinctive. Pink Martini’s songs traverse the terrain of golden-era Hollywood, French cabaret, Cuban rumba, pop, gypsy and jazz. Lead singer China Forbes’ sultry grace takes multilingual twists and turns, as at home with Latin American, Japanese and Arabic lyrics as with English and French. With their three independent releases Sympathique, Hang On Little Tomato and 2007’s Hey Eugene, Pink Martini have reached an enormous audience worldwide.

From the Cannes Film Festival to smoky bars to concert halls across Europe, Asia and North America, they have shared stages with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Sergio Mendes and Al Green. With their intimate and expansive sound, joyously polished arrangements and diverse repertoire, this promises to be an evening of elegance and charm.
