Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brazilian marching street band and Japanese film noir is the 12-piece Pink Martini. Part language lesson, part Hollywood musical, the Portland, Oregon-based ‘little orchestra’ is equally at home performing its multi-lingual repertoire on concert stages and smoky bars.

The recipe for a Pink Martini would read something like this: One part French chanson, one part Argentine tango, one part soft meringue beat, and a dash of gin-joint jazz. Combine ingredients and shake vigorously over old Hollywood glamour.
