Because people like to say "salsa"
This past weekend I got my culture on and saw Pink Martini play an excellent show with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra. If you don't know PM (and I had only been introduced to them via my brother last month), they are an 11 piece band whose musical style is all over the map: salsa, cabaret, jazz, classical, pop. The whole night was a classy affair. Highlights include their renditions of "Que Sera Sera", "Bolero", and "Brazil". And I think that I'm in love with their lead singer China Forbes.
Do check them out if they come to your town.
There's a slew of their live performances on YouTube, including "Hey Eugene", which is the title track of their upcoming album.
