Formed in 1994, their first album, Sympathique, was released in 1997 and went double gold in France, where their eponymous single (...je ne veux pas travailler...) was used in an advertising campaign. Following this success, the band continued to play concerts all over the world. The second album, Hang on Little Tomato, was released in October 2004.
Comprising original songs and covers in several languages, the band's repertoire is difficult to pin down to a specific musical genre because it breaks down the barriers between music. The press describes it as a "musical melting pot" and a "jukebox of multicultural influences and passions". Pianist and composer Thomas Lauderdale describes the band's musicians as "archaeologists, always looking for nuggets hidden in the recordings and music of the past".
Pink Martini's lead singer is China Forbes. Although she was born in the United States, one of her two grandmothers was French, and China learned the language as a child, giving her a natural ease in expressing herself and singing in French. Good news for the fans: she will share the stage with Storm Large who joined the group in 2011, the two singers will be present on the summer tour which is very rare!
While in Monaco this summer, come to the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo to meet this sympathique American band.
