La Nona Kanta is a tale of survival and courage. The program is a celebration of the life and work of Flory Altarac Jagoda, the National Heritage Award-winning, Bosnian-born, Sephardic singer and composer, with live music by Susan Gaeta, Tina Chancey, and Howard Bass of Sephardic ensemble Trio Sefardi.
Discover how Flory turned the tragic fate of her family and Balkan Sephardic culture into a celebration of five centuries of faith and tradition, giving meaning to the rest of her life and delighting audiences worldwide.
Join the Museum’s National Institute for Holocaust Documentation to explore archival family photographs, still images, original animation, and interviews of Flory, who shares the true story of how music helped her to escape from Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia as a teenager.
This program is free, and no tickets are required.
