About Banda Magda
She was ranked 2nd on iTunes in the world music category last month. Fab Dupont told us…
I met Magda after Michael League from Snarky Puppy recommended me for mixing her record. I later learned that she had already had the record mixed completely once and was not happy with the results. We hit it off and we have been working together ever since.
It turns out Magda is a musical genius and is very, very prolific. Every session had 120+ tracks, full orchestras, choirs, horn sections, accordions, full on Brazilian percussion sections that come in for 8 bars only, etc, etc… Starting the mix from scratch was daunting task, taxing the computer resources and pushing my system to its limits, as well as forcing me to invent new ways to make everything fit as Magda was not too keen on muting much of her work. In the end, the record came out fabulously well. It got selected one of the Top 10 World Music Records of 2013 by NPR, charted on the Billboard World music ranking, and is getting wonderful praise by reviewers and listeners alike.
