Pink Martini blends influences from Cuban rumbas to classical chamber music, from Parisian cafe tunes to foreign film soundtracks, creating music that spans the continents. Comprised of 10 musicians, the Portland, Oregon-based Pink Martini was a fortuitous accident, thrown together as the opener for the 3-girl, 3-guitar ensemble The Del Rubio Triplets in the Fall of 1994.
Since then, the group has gone on to tour Europe, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon and Taiwan. In the United States, Pink Martini has toured the country performing with symphony orchestras including the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, The Nashville Symphony, The Jacksonville Symphony and The Oregon Symphony, among others.
In France, their CD has gone "Double Gold," and the group was nominated for the prestigious “Victoires de la Musique” awards for song of the year and best new artist.
