Biography

Roza Eskenazi (c. 1890 – 2 December 1980, Greek: Ρόζα Εσκενάζυ) was a famous Greek singer of Rebetiko and traditional Greek music from Asia Minor. Her recording career extended from the late 1920s into the 1970s.
Born Sarah Skenazi in Constantinople (now Istanbul), Roza Eskenazi was of Sephardi Jewish origin. When she was about seven years old, her family moved to Thessaloniki, where her parents earned a living doing a variety of menial jobs. In her teens Rosa began performing with two Armenian cabaret dancers named Seramous and Zabel, who reportedly liked her because she could speak their language, Turkish, and had talent as a singer.[1]
Eskenazi moved to Piraeus in 1910. She continued to perform as a dancer but also sang songs in Greek, Turkish, and Armenian for cabaret patrons. In 1929, she was discovered by Panagiotis Tountas, a well-known composer and record producer with whom she made her first recordings. She soon became famous, and by the mid 1930s, she had recorded more than 500 folk music and rebetiko songs, as well as songs from Smyrna (İzmir).
