I don’t want to get bored: excellent 'global' cocktail!
Pink Martini, with songstress China Forbes, is coming to AB on 31 May 2018!
Pink Martini is the brainchild of pianist Thomas Lauderdale (Portland, Oregon) who established a ‘small band’ in 1994 to improve the quality of the music during meeting pauses. A year later Thomas invited Harvard study companion China Forbes to join Pink Martini as singer/composer. The first song that they wrote together was an instant success in France. ‘Sympathique’ was nominated for ‘song of the year’ and ‘newcomer of the year’ at France’s Victoires de la Musique Awards. This song’s creed (‘Je ne veux pas travailler’) is still used as a mantra during strikes in France.
