Maria Tanase is loved in Romania like no singer that has followed her. Even before the Second World War she performed folk songs, tangos, romances, couplets and cantece de mahala (music from the suburbs) in restaurants, in revue theatres and on the radio, usually accompanied by Roma musicians, the lautari. Tanase developed her own expressive way of interpretation, making songs of every origin her own. In 2013, Romanians are celebrating the centenary of Maria Tanase's birth. This anniversary inspired the Romanian Oana Catalina Chitu, who lives in Berlin, to pay homage to the great singer. Oana is not an apologist, awestruck by the legacy of the Romanian diva Maria Tanase. She would like to enter into a dialogue with a phenomenal legacy which, with the exception of a few voices, has almost no creative follow-up in today's Romanian music scene.
