For a quarter of a century, Pink Martini have fused a unique blend of jazz, world music, cabaret, lounge and 1940-50s film music, with the New York Times describing them as the "suave salon orchestra."
Ever since their formation, they have wowed crowds worldwide with their signature cocktail of crowd-pleasing classical, pop and jazz arrangements by founder, bandleader and pianist Thomas Lauderdale, showcased by the lux vocals of long term collaborator China Forbes, alongside the eclectic instrumentals of their one of a kind musical ensemble, and have performed in 22 different languages.
Their most recent album, Hotel Amour, was released earlier in 2019 in collaboration with the international singing sensation Meow Meow, also featuring guest appearances by Rufus Wainwright, The von Trapps, Barry Humphries (of Dame Edna fame), and the inimitable late French pianist and composer, Michel Legrand.
