Brief Synopsis:
This is a documentary about the life and career of Vanja Lazarova, the greatest female performer of traditional Macedonian songs, the first Macedonian singer to record phonograms for PHILIPS, and the only one to have performed before Queen Elizabeth II and Sir Winston Churchill at the Royal Albert Hall. She promoted traditional Macedonian songs all around the world and is viewed by many as the Macedonian equivalent of Cezaria Evora. For Vanja, singing is as natural as breathing ... Her life has been full of ups and downs, but she is still going strong at the age of 85.
