Please help Trio Sefardi with our newest CD
Susan Gaeta and Howard Bass toured and recorded with Flory as The Flory Jagoda Trio for more than a decade. Now, following the success of the Trio’s multi-media show, La Nona Kanta: The Remarkable Life of Flory Jagoda, Susan and Howard have decided to create a companion CD with 18 of Flory’s most beloved songs.
Originally arranged by Flory for guitars and voices, with new instrumental touches by Tina Chancey, a frequent collaborator, these songs celebrate her childhood in the Bosnian village of Vlaseniça, reflect her hardships in the Second World War, and her intense wish to continue the tradition. Rikordus will be a compilation CD, combining six of Flory’s songs from Trio Sefardi’s three previous recordings with twelve additional songs, some of which Flory never recorded. Target release date is March 1, 2021.
