description: Flory Jagoda’s “Ocho Kandelikas” (Eight Little Candles) paints a picture of the Chanukah ceremonies she remembers from her childhood in Yugoslavia. The piano/guitar accompaniment is very simple (there are only two chords), but the singers are encouraged to add to the fun with various percussion instruments (shakers, tambourines, hand-drums, etc.).
