My Sweet Canary Live Recordings Soundtrack



The 'My Sweet Canary' concert ensemble was
established during the years 2009 and 2010 during
the production of the Musical Documentary Film
'My Sweet Canary', a musical and cinematic
journey through the life and music of the queen
of the Rebetiko music, Roza Eskenazi, directed
and produced by Roy Sher.
The film follows three young musicians from Israel, Turkey
and Greece, on a journey motivated by the influence of
Roza Eskenazi's life, as an artist and as a woman, an
influence that drew each one of them, for his own reasons,
to play her music in his native country today.
In their musical journey throughout today's exotic Rebetiko
scenes of Turkey and Greece, they met and played
with acclaimed musicians and together performed in live
and staged performances, new interpretations to Roza's
borderless songs in exciting and colorful locations.
The My Sweet Canary tribute concert to Roza Eskenazi was
born as the musical climax of the film and was based on a
very simple idea: Gathering the best Greek, Turkish and
Jewish musicians who are featured in the Film, and represent
Roza Eskenazy's multicultural biography and repertoire
for a special tribute concert to the music of Roza
The original Concert premiered on March 16th, 2010 in the
'Stage', Thessaloniki, and is partly documented in the
film. The original ensemble that played it consisted of
the following musicians:

will launch the 'My Sweet Canary' concert tour, with the
musicians featured in the film, as well as other Musicians
who will join the ensemble.
The My Sweet Canary ensemble consists of 13 acclaimed
musicians from Greece, Turkey, Israel and the UK, including
the great female voices from Greece, Israel and
Turkey that will sing the greatest songs from the Roza
Eskenazy's repertoire in Greek, Turkish and Ladino. The
concert lasts around 2 hours, without intermission, and
includes rare and archive footage of Roza Eskenazi, as
well as scenes taken from the documentary Film.
2011 marks the 30th year to Roza Eskenazi's death. Her
music still lives on and will always will. For Greek and
Turkish music lovers, Rebetiko music lovers and of
course- world music lovers, the 'My Sweet Canary' concert
will be an amazing musical and sensual experience with
the spirit of Roza Eskenazi.
