Stockholm, 1979. Odysseus Elytis, left, receives the Nobel prize for Literature from the King of Sweden.  "The winner of the 1979 Nobel prize for literature, Odysseus Elytis, is not well known outside his native Greece. There he is popular for his poetry that expresses the ideals, history, mythology, and hopes of his country."

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.
