The Ottawa Greek Community perform a flash mob in the Byward market to promote the 2011 Ottawa Greek Festival.
"Zorba's dance" and later called Sirtaki, has become a popular cliché of Greek dance.
The film's music by Mikis Theodorakis, especially the main song, Zorbas, is well known in popular culture.
Zorba the Greek (Βίος και Πολιτεία του Αλέξη Ζορμπά) is a novel written by the Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis, first published in 1946. It is the tale of a young Greek intellectual who ventures to escape his bookish life with the aid of the boisterous and mysterious Alexis Zorba. The novel was adapted into a successful 1964 film of the same name as well as a 1968 musical, Zorba.
We must both have been hungry because we constantly led the conversation round to food.
"What is your favorite dish, grandad?"
"All of them, my son. It's a great sin to say this is good and that is bad."
"Why? Can't we make a choice?"
"No, of course we can't."
"Because there are people who are hungry." I was silent, ashamed. My heart had never been able to reach that height of nobility and compassion.

- Mi sangre fluye a borbotones por mis arterias y llega a mi cerebro en un febril frenesí recordando que somos pocos los que amamos nuestra cultura y folclor, a Grecia la abrazo con vehemencia solidaria y desde este terruño en Colombia les mando las voces de la momposina y de mis hermanos "Guerreros Olimpicos de la cultura"
- Love Greece Forever Greece.
