Pink Martini
Central Park Mainstage (mid-park, 72nd St., Manhattan)

Embracing a multilingual, international style of music that utilizes the band members diverse multi-national backgrounds, Pink Martini will have you feeling like you’re in the middle of a samba parade in Rio de Janeiro one minute, and in the next moment, a French music hall of the 1930s. By drawing inspiration from music from all over the world, and crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop, the band has referred to itself as “musical archeologists, digging through recordings and scores of years past and rediscovering beautiful songs.”
