Musician in Residence

On March 2, 2013 Flory Jagoda and Susan Gaeta came to Bet Aviv at our Musician in Residence.  In this video, Flory looks back on her life and family in Bosnia before the Holocaust, and a musical culture she has helped re-create in the United States. Her commentary intermingles with her songs, perfomed here with Susan Gaeta one cold 2013 afternoon in Columbia at Bet Aviv.
