Pink Martini

[Link]: "'We're kind of like musical archaeologists, bringing melodies and rhythms from different parts of the world together to create something which is modern,' says founder and pianist Thomas M. Lauderdale. 'It's like an urban musical travelogue....and I think as citizens of the world and in a sense as musical ambassadors for the United States, we must always strive to study the languages, customs, and histories of other countries. We're very much an American band, but we spend a lot of time abroad, in Europe, in Turkey, in Lebanon and therefore have the opportunity to demonstrate that Americans are indeed serious about engaging in a dialogue with the rest of the world.'"

My new favourite group!!! Listen to them here.
