La Nona Kanta is a tale of survival and courage with particular relevance in today’s turbulent world. The program is a celebration of the life and work of Flory Altarac Jagoda, the National Heritage Award-winning, Borsian-born Sephardic singer and composer, with live music byu Susan Gaeta, Tina Chancey and Howard Bass of the ensemble Trio Sephardi.

In filmed interviews, Flory tells the true story of how music helped her escape from Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia when she was a teenager; how she made a life in the United States; and how she 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.

Presented in collaboration with the National Institute for Holocaust Documentation at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
