Sarah Aroeste


Ladino chanteuse Sarah Aroeste, inspired by her Sephardic roots from Spain and Greece, works to bring Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) music to life for a new generation. Aroeste travels the globe fusing both original and 15th-century Ladino folk songs with contemporary influences such as rock, funk, jazz and blues. She has released two recordings, A la Una: In the Beginning and Puertas. In 2007 Aroeste began collaborating with Roberto Rodriguez, writing original, Cuban-inspired, Sephardic-themed songs. With her modern take, Aroeste presents a fresh, soulful new sound to Ladino and Sephardic music.
