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 Rebe-tiko 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 Israeli musicians who are featured in the Film, and represent Roza Eskenazi's multicultural biography and repertoire for a special tribute concert to the music of Roza Eskenazi.
The My Sweet Canary ensemble consists of 10 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:
Mor Karbasi/ Israel
Yota Nega/ Greece
Mehtap Demir/ Turkey
