A 'little orchestra'
Pink Martini are the brain child of Thomas Lauderdale, who in the early 1990's was thinking of running for Mayoral office. But he slowly became frustrated and fascinated by the musical entertainment during political society events. So he formed Pink Martini to address this and make music that appeals to everyone, from liberals to conservatives, all over the world. Over 20 years later, they're still going strong!
Sympathique and beyond
Since releasing their first single, Sympathique, they have recorded 8 studio albums and collaborated with artists as diverse as Gus Van Sant, The Von Trapp family, to Sesame Street. It's impossible to not be motivated by their their distinct classical, Latin and jazz infused output with multilingual lyrics. They are truly a band that can be enjoyed all over the world.
