Rosa Eskenazy was another rebetiko female vocalist who was just as unconventional in her life as Sotiria, however her movements were more theatrical and calculated, she came from a family of professional musicians and her style is informed by that history. Much of her music was composed with many instruments in mind, oud, violin and classical orchestration in general, hence she receives more credit in academic and sophisticated music circles, unfair as that may be.

Greek woman from Smyrna, an important Aegean coastal town, today in Turkey. Many locales were named after Smyrna, notably in the USA. There's a "Smyrna" in the states of California, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, North-Carolina & South-Carolina, Tennessee ... and two of them in New York. The original town itself cannot be called "Smyrna" however. The Turks insist that "Izmir", the  Turkish mispronunciation of its name, must instead be used in all languages.

Panagiotis Toundas was a prolific composer who came to Piraeus from Smyrna, and continued to have a great career.  Panayotis "The Smyrniot" Doukas is loosely based on him.  But not the nasty bits.
