Padam Padam? Some say it's a slang term for Paris, some say it's what Edith Piaf sang when she couldn't remember the lyrics. But based in Portland, Oregon, Padam Padam is a lively assortment of instruments and vocals, playing music inflected with styles from around the world. Padam Padam transports you to cabarets and streets, to the far corners of the world as they play music from Latin America, the European cabaret scene and contemporary North America. Our repertoire includes tunes by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht, Eddie Cantor, Xavier Cugart, Tom Waits, Jacques Brel and even Ms. Piaf herself. Plus some outstanding Padam Padam originals.
