Banda Magda (Jean Rohe opens) in Woodbridge, NJ

Led by greek-born singer, accordionist, film scorer and composer Magda Giannikou, BANDA MAGDA moves from baiao to jazz manouche, from Greek dance rhythms to samba beats. Their songs, sung in French (with forays into six other languages), hearken back to the golden age of Brazilian bossa, the best of

cinematic arranging, and the lush chic of vintage French pop, all while drawing on the band’s global background. Trained in film scoring at Berklee, Giannikou’s film music finesse has won her awards and caught the attention of everyone from Kronos Quartet to Louis CK (she sang a duet with CK for the comedian’s TV show).

JEAN ROHE sings and plays multi-lingual original music of the Americas, North and South. Whether solo or with her genre-bending trio, Jean brings the full breadth of her stylistic attractions to bear, exploring the intersections of American folk music, jazz, Brazilian and Afro-Peruvian traditions. The product of both a nurturing folk music community in her childhood, as well as the vibrant New York improvised music scene, it is not unusual to find Jean and her band in a downtown jazz club inviting a disarmed audience to sing boisterous choruses. Likewise, her sophisticated songwriting and arranging has found a home at folk music festivals around the country. Jean has performed everywhere from the Birdland to the National Theater in Cuba; from New York City's own Living Room to the Montreux Jazz Festiva
