''A standard question from everyone who follows your work; what are you in the end? Singer, actress, director?
-''A cook'' she replies laughing. I do not know and I am not interested in having an identity because I feel that by the time people acquire an identity the loose childishness. I want to do what my soul tells me to do.''
Apart from her numerous theatrical performances she counts major albums with groups and songwriters such as Thanassis Papakonstantinou, Hainides and Themos Skandamis as well as live performances with artists such as Stavros Xarhakos, Haroula Alexiou, George Ntalaras, Fivos Delivorias, Tania Tsanaklidou, Yasmin Levi and Lena Platonos. In her concerts in London, she performed with the group 'moosootoo', who have also completed some major live collaborations with the amazing bouzouki virtuoso Manolis Karantinis and the legendary Rebetiko singer Rena Stamou. This time, Martha presented and sang songs mainly from the pre-Rebetiko and Rebetiko periods. Mythopolis, the venue hosting the event offered snacks and drinks.
