"Liberated ladies and tough broads"
An evening dedicated to arguably the only truly liberated women of modern Greece: the female rebetika singers. Women such as Marika Papagika (USA), Rita Abatzi and Roza Eskenazy (Greece) were well known vocalists in Greece in the 20s and 30s. Performers like Soriria Bellou continued the tradition in later years.
If the lyrics are to be believed, these were self-confident women who cared little about what society thought of them, just wanted to have fun and expressed these two ideas both in their songs and through their lifestyle.
