Podcast: Flory Jagoda, Sephardic singer

Tablet magazine provides a great podcast with the amazing Flory Jagoda, 82, whose Sephardic family is from Bosnia.

She composed “Ocho Kandelikas,” a nearly-instant Chanukah hit song in Ladino that she only composed 25 years ago. It is perhaps the best known Sephardic holiday song, recorded by many artists.

You will enjoy listening to the entire podcast. Hear her and her family’s story and snippets of other songs.
