Eftalya was born in 1891 in Istanbul and died in the same city in 1939.
She was the daughter of a Greek-born Ottoman army officer by the name of Yorgaki Efendi, who was also a music lover and an amateur musician. .
When she was a very young girl, Eftalya and her father used to hire a rowing boat on the hot summer evenings and venture out near Büyükdere, a village on the European side of the Bosphorus, for pleasure excursions during which she sang throughout.
Being unable to see her face or know where this voice was coming from, the villagers ascribed the voice to The Mermaid (Deniz Kizi)
It was under this name that she began her professional career when only a teenager. She made many recordings for Pathé, Columbia and HMV issues on 78 rpm records.
Kalan now presents this archive material on CD for the first time.
