Notes
-  As singer, composer, and teacher of Sephardic song, Flory Jagoda has been identified as "keeper of the flame" for preserving, perpetuating, and expanding this venerable Jewish cultural tradition. A 2002 recipient of a National Heritage Fellowship, presented by the National Endowment for the Arts, Jagoda later served as a Master Artist in the Folklife Apprenticeship Program for the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. Born in Sarajevo, Bosnia, in 1923, Flory Jagoda learned many songs from her Nona (grandmother) and other family members, who were known as the "Singing Altaračs." Her original compositions and arrangements have been performed and recorded by singers and groups in the U.S. and Europe.
