First listen Pink Martini - Je Dis Oui

A must see light story that takes you from Italy to North Pole to Norway and even Africa of Malckeon birth... Mummies boy is exposed to Bohemian relations along the polyandry side of life. Not many films can boast the near equivalent of Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ three-week ticket sales in its first weekend, but that’s exactly what Where Am I Going? achieved when it opened in Italy earlier this year.  Indeed this hilarious comedy now stands as the highest-grossing film in Italian cinema history, earning over 60 million Euros.

Pink Martini is just showing off. To takke in Je Dis Oui! is to experience a globetrotting victory lap across no fewer than eight different languages — English, French, Farsi, Armenian, Portuguese, Arabic, Turkish and, in a cover of Miriam Makeba's glorious "Pata Pata," Xhosa — all tackled with cosmopolitan sophistication and the playfulness of pop. Everything the 15-piece Portland band touches has an air of precision, but these surprising songs don't feel sterile or studio-bound, either.
