My Sweet Canary

Roza Eskenazi sang the way she lived--with passion, fire and love. When her posters were displayed in every gramophone store, her Bohemian looks would drive even the toughest men crazy! Three contemporary musicians from Greece, Turkey and Israel embark on an exciting journey to tell the story of Roza, Greece’s best-known and best-loved “Rebetiko” (Greek blues) singer. Traveling throughout Turkey and Greece, the trio follows the musical trail that the Diva of Rebetiko left behind…a trail that leads them to a world that has largely vanished, but whose sounds continue to echo throughout the Mediterranean and beyond. http://washingtondcjcc.org/center-for-arts/film/WJFF/2011-film-pages/my-sweet-canary.html
