Pink Martini Background
It was two decades ago when potential mayoral candidate, Thomas
Lauderdale of Portland, Oregon, became disheartened with the musical choices at the political fundraisers he attended. He
found the music to be loud and lifeless. Ever the activist, Lauderdale established the "little orchestra" Pink Martini in
1994 in hopes of appealing to all parties, regardless of their affiliation. This visionary drew his inspiration from music
played globally to include jazz, traditional pop and classical. His goal was to offer music for political fundraisers that
was both inclusive and lovely and would also appropriately fit the causes like civil rights, affordable housing and education.
year later, Lauderdale invited a Harvard classmate of his to join Pink Martini. Soon after, China Forbes and Lauderdale started
penning songs together. "Sympathique" was their first single, which became an instant hit in France. It was also given a Song
of the Year nod at the Victoires de la Musique Awards.
Lauderdale said, "All of us in Pink Martini have studied different
languages as well as different styles of music from different parts of the world. So inevitably, our repertoire is wildly
diverse. At one moment, you feel like you're in the middle of a samba parade in Rio de Janeiro, and in the next moment, you're
in a French music hall of the 1930s or a palazzo in Napoli. It's a bit like an urban musical travelogue. We're very much an
American band, but we spend a lot of time abroad and therefore have the incredible diplomatic opportunity to represent a broader,
more inclusive America... the America which remains the most heterogeneously populated country in the world... composed of
people of every country, every language, every religion."
Pink Martini's premiere album, Sympathique, was issued autonomously
in 1997 on their Heinz Records label. In 2004, Hang On Little Tomato arrived, followed by Hey Eugene! (2007) and Splendor
in the Grass (2009). Joy To The World came out in 2010, just in time for the holidays, including multi-denominational tunes
from around the world. The album garnered rave reviews and was sold in Starbucks throughout the 2010-11 holiday season. All
five of Pink Martini's albums have claimed gold certification in Turkey, Greece, Canada and France.
In 2011, A Retrospective
and 1969, were released. A Retrospective served as a collection of Pink Martini's most treasured songs covering their nearly
20-year career. And, 1969, was a vehicle for collaborative efforts with Saori Yuki, a renowned Japanese singer. The 1969 album
earned platinum certification in Japan and scored the No. 2 spot on Japanese charts.
Earlier in 2014, Pink Martini and
the von Trapps revealed that their album Dream a Little Dream would be coming out in March 2014.

Pink Martini Trivia
Forbes, Pink Martini's lead singer, recorded a video salutation to Paolo Nespoli, an Italian astronaut for the European Space
Agency (ESA), and Aleksandr Kaleri, a Russian cosmonaut, on board the International Space Station. The astronauts were getting
ready to man the docking of the Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) cargo vessel. Dosvedanya Mio Bombino served as the backdrop
for the greeting, which is one of Pink Martini's trademark songs.
