Flory Jagoda, raised in a musical household in Bosnia, traces her heritage to pre-Inquisition Spain. Tragically, her entire family was killed in the Holocaust, and in 1978 she began to write, record, teach and perform the music she had learned from them. Flory’s mission has been to continue her family’s cultural legacy through their music. She has been widely labeled “keeper of the flame” for her significant role in reviving Ladino music.
