Banda Magda debuts their rainbow-bold meditations on courage, confidence, and resisting fear on the New York album release of "Tigre", the band’s third, wildly cinematic album. (September 15, 2017; Verve Label Group) A rallying cry to speak up and stand out, the album presents the band's most coherent and brightly orchestrated work to date.

Founded in 2010 in New York, Banda Magda has toured in more than 22 countries and 5 continents. This diverse, tight-knit 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.
