This recording includes songs from Trio Sefardi’s multi-media show, “La Nona Kanta: The Remarkable Life of Flory Jagoda,” and other songs that we learned from Flory. Fourteen songs are in Ladino, three are in Serbo-Croatian; these are the languages Flory grew up speaking in the Yugoslav village of Vlaseniça and in Zagreb prior to her dramatic escape from the Nazis in 1941. The joyful “Ocho Kandelikas,” Flory’s most famous song, was also her first composition; the deeply emotional “Sviraj Harmoniku” and “Rikordus di mi Nona” were among her final works. The rest are her arrangements of traditional songs and original compositions.
