We’re excited to bring you acclaimed musician, Sarah Aroeste, live from her home to yours! Sarah is an international Ladino singer/songwriter, author and cultural activist, who draws upon her Sephardic family roots from Macedonia and Greece (via Medieval Spain) to bring Judeo-Spanish culture to new generations. Since 2001, Aroeste has toured the globe and recorded five albums, from a feminist Ladino rock album (Gracia, 2012) to an all-original Ladino children’s album (Ora de Despertar, 2016). Aroeste also recently published her newest children’s book, Buen Shabat, Shabbat Shalom (Kar-Ben and PJ Library, 2020), the first bilingual Ladino-English board book. Bringing Ladino words and music to young and old, Aroeste works to introduce Sephardic culture to wider audiences. www.saraharoeste.com
