International Ladino singer Sarah Aroeste travels the globe fusing both original and 15th-century Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) folk songs with her unique blend of rock, pop, and jazz. One of few artists today who writes her own music in Ladino, Aroeste draws upon her family roots from Spain and Greece and works tirelessly to bring Ladino music back to life for a new generation. Aroeste has released four recordings: A la Una: In the Beginning (2003), Puertas (2007), Gracia (2012), and Ora de Despertar (2016), the first ever all-original Ladino children’s album. NPR has featured Aroeste as one of the most boundary-pushing Latin artists today, and she has garnered wide critical acclaim for her efforts to introduce and bring Ladino music to wider audiences. Bringing a fresh and inspiring contemporary sound to Ladino music, Sarah Aroeste and has helped to transform and revitalize a tradition.
Aroeste presents a special Lunch & Learn "Sing-Talk," sharing stories from her personal family history to illustrate why a young American woman is among those leading the charge to preserve Ladino culture today. Through a multi-media presentation using sound clips, videos and live music, Aroeste will give a taste of how her work is pushing the Ladino envelope today.
