Flory Jagoda's Ocho Kandelikas

Ocho Kandelikas is my favorite Hannukah song, and I am very happy to have found a recording of it on line by the composer, Flory Jagoda.

Jagoda, who grew up in Sarajevo, is an octogenarian (oco-generarian in this case!) who has kept the Sephardic musical tradition (in the Ladino language) alive in song.

Happy Hannukah everybody.

Oh yes. I should put an obligatory link to my second favorite Hannukah song. It's pretty much unknown except by people who know me, live with me, or have been reading my blog for a number of years.
