Pink MartiniThe Oregon-based 'little orchestra' Pink Martini bring their "swiftly intoxicating and elegantly chilled" (The Telegraph) blend of multilingual lounge pop back to the Royal Albert Hall for a night of easy-listening world music. Founded in 1994 by bandleader and pianist Thomas Lauderdale and his fellow Harvard student China Forbes - the "Diva next door" with an uncanny ability to sing in an extraordinary number of languages - Pink Martini have been described as the United Nations of music, blending of 30s Cuban dance, classical chamber music, Brazilian marching street band, speakeasy cocktail jazz and Japanese film noir. The mesmeric Forbes was absent for the ensemble's debut visit to the Royal Albert Hall in 2011, making this return all the more appealing for Pink Martini's cosmopolitan hoards of fans.
