Join Sarah Aroeste, an international Ladino singer/songwriter, author and speaker, as she brings you along on a musical journey highlighting the Sephardic experience from past to present. Enjoy an interactive, mixed-media program that integrates music, storytelling, and the sacred sounds of this rich, oral tradition that has survived shifting centuries and borders to still inspire us today.

This event is supported by the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library.


Inspired by her family’s roots in N. Macedonia and Greece, Sarah Aroeste is determined to bring Sephardic culture to new generations. Since 2001, Aroeste has toured the globe presenting traditional and original Ladino songs with her unique blend of Balkan sounds, pop, and jazz. Sarah is currently co-directing her newest initiative, Savor: A Sephardic Music & Food Experience, which unites Sephardic song and cuisine in multi-sensory platforms. In addition to composing songs, Sarah has published numerous articles and essays about Sephardic cultural preservation and writes Sephardic themed books for children, including Buen Shabat, Shabbat Shalom (Kar-Ben 2020), and the forthcoming Mazal Bueno (Kar-Ben 2023).
