Kick off ArtWalk weekend right! Join the folks at Colonial Theatre for a live performance by Banda Magda
Led by Greek-born composer, orchestrator, singer and accordionist Magda Giannikou (Kronos Quartet, Louis CK), Banda Magda moves from samba to French chanson, from Greek folk tunes to Colombian cumbia and Afro-Peruvian lando. Drawing on the band’s global background (Greece, Argentina, Japan, Colombia, USA), the group combines South American rhythms with jazz improvisation, cinematic arranging, sophisticated audience participation, mid-century classics and world “chansons” sung in 6 languages.
Founded in 2010 in New York, Banda Magda has toured in more than 22 countries and 5 continents. This group of close musical friends turn Giannikou’s songs into engaging romps that have won them a spot with Carnegie Hall Musical Explorers Series, Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner Vol.1 as well as performances at discerning venues and festivals such as WOMAD, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Vancouver Jazz Festival, L’Olympia, Jazz à Vienne, Canarias Jazz, Apollo Hammersmith, The Kennedy Center, Kathmandu Jazz Festival and many more. After their debut album “Amour, t’es là?” and sophomore “Yerakina”, Banda Magda is producing their 3rd opus, the vibrant, Technicolor “Tigre” to be released in 2017.
After the success of their brilliantly colorful debut album, Amour, t’es là? (Top 10 Billboard World Music Charts, NPR’s All Songs Considered, First Listen, NPR’s 10 favorite World Music Albums 2013), the Banda came back with Yerakina. The album, co-produced by GRAMMY Award-winners Michael League (Snarky Puppy) and Fab Dupont (Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Bebel Gilberto), shows the next step in the Banda’s devotion to their craft and their sound, featuring Technicolor folk songs and pop chestnuts played with dynamic finesse.
EccentroSoul 1 Woman Band, Chaquis Maliq (Sha-Kees Mah-Leek), delivers the sound of Eccentric Tasteful Grooves and Honey Soul to her listeners. ArtsQuest calls her “Beauty, Brains, and Power of Soul”.
Chaquis Maliq transformed as an artist in 2011 by picking up the guitar with the motivation to uplift listeners on her first project, entitled ‘Harmonies of Me’ (Summer 2013). Since then Chaquis released ‘Resilience Eludes Death’, displaying her production growth and evolution with guitar and bass (November 23, 2016).
In 2014, Maliq made her successful debut as the 1 Woman Band for her Spring Tour, and received media attention as the 1 Woman Band performance artist to be featured in coverage of the Columbus Arts Festival for Fox28’s Good Day Columbus (Ohio). 2016 Chaquis and her 1 Woman Band made their way to ABC4’s Low Country Live Charleston, SC and CBS7's Your Carolina- Greenville, SC. Chaquis’ 1 Woman Band compliments her cozy sound by giving the audience a full band experience you’ll never forget.

She draws inspiration from life experiences, her imagination, and a myriad of different music genres to create her unique sound.

She lives to create and connect with others through her music.
Ana D’Leon is a self-taught musician from Vermont who started playing guitar at the tender age of 13. Ana began writing songs long before she picked up the guitar. As a child, Ana learned the foundations of music on trumpet and listened to a diverse mix of music when she was growing up. Because Ana’s father is from the Dominican Republic, she grew up listening to Merengue, Bachata, Julio Iglesias, and even Tom Jones. Ana’s mother, a seventh generation Vermonter, loved Meatloaf, Genesis, John Denver, Cindy Lauper and many others. Ana says she was privileged to have grown up next to a Classic Rock lover.
Ana says her music is created in cooperation with a force much larger than herself. She draws from her life experiences and diverse musical background to create what you hear today. She is always learning and enjoys connecting with her listeners.
For Ana, the shared experience is what it is all about. The silent transfer of emotion. There is something sacred in that.
