Pink Martini

with singer China Forbes; presented by WFUV

Featuring a dozen musicians, Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire around the world by crossing genres, like classical, Latin, jazz and classic pop. Pink Martini was originally founded by Thomas Lauderdale in 1994 to provide more beautiful and inclusive musical soundtracks for political fundraisers for causes like civil rights, affordable housing, the environment, libraries, public broadcasting, education and parks.

Pink Martini's debut album, Sympathique, was released independently in 1997 on the band’s own label Heinz Records (named after Lauderdale's dog), and quickly became an international phenomenon. The band has collaborated and performed with artists, like Jimmy Scott, Carol Channing, Jane Powell, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Henri Salvador and Chavela Vargase.

The group’s full lineup for the concert will be Thomas M. Lauderdale (piano), China Forbes (vocals), Gavin Bondy (trumpet),  Robert Taylor (trombone), Nicholas Crosa (violin), Phil Baker (upright bass), Dan Faehnle (guitar), Timothy Nishimoto (vocals and percussion), Brian Davis (congas and percussion),  Miguel Bernal (congas and percussion) and Reinhardt Melz (drums and percussion).
