-  A 2002 recipient of a National Heritage Fellowship, presented by the National Endowment for the Arts, Flory 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, Jagoda learned many songs from her grandmother and other family members, who were known as the "Singing Altaras." Her original compositions and arrangements have been performed and recorded by singers and groups in the U.S. and Europe and many are now firmly entrenched in Sephardic song tradition.
