This week on the show I feature Magda Giannikou of Banda Magda, the Greek-born but New York-based accordionist/pianist/vocalist. She recently released her band’s debut album, Amour t’es la?. Oh, did I mention the whole thing is in French? Because it is. We discussed her decision to write and sing entirely in French, the most amount of band members she’s ever had on stage, and how her synesthesia affects her writing process. Enjoy!
