An evening of timeless songs and nostalgic storytelling, exploring the musical styles and popular culture of the roaring twenties and the dark interwar era, up to the late fifties. Join us for an eclectic mix of international songs. Featuring contemporary interpretations of classic songs by Edith Piaf, Amalia Rodrigues, Danae, Dalida, Yves Montand, Bert Firman, Andrews Sisters, among others, this event offers homage to European tango, bolero, waltz, foxtrot and swing, as well as to the lesser known Greek «jazz» of the inter-war period sung in Greek, English and other languages.
