XX Miscellaneous Performers XX

The songs of one of Greece’s greatest icons, performed by the Katerina Clambaneva and her band. “Tabakiera”, “Mona Zyga”, “Poso Lypamai”…

“Where there is one Greek, there is Greece!”

A legendary woman, singer and actress that was adored by an entire nation and its diaspora! She became known for her passionate love songs and dramatic roles in theatre and film and was hailed as the ‘Voice of Greece’ when she used her music to support the troops during World War II against the Italians. This evening will attempt to encapsulate a power house of a personality through song.
