Happy Chanukah!
by: Schvach Yid



Sarah speaks, not about Chanukah (at least not in this video), but rather about her
apparent first love and passion, Ladino language and music.

Sarah's family hails from Thessaloniki,
formerly known as Salonica, Greece,
(Macedonia) and Greece sorta figures into Chanukah (in a Syrian sort of way).

Since Chanukah is upon us, I want to offer a gift to the readers of my blog site, so here she is, Sarah Aroeste:














For those of you who are fortunate enough to live in New York (my home town – how I miss it), she concertizes regularly there; she also takes her Ladino act to places far and wide. Her concert schedule can be found on her blog site at: http://www.saraharoeste.com/

My thanks to YoYenta for introducing me to the Sarah Aroeste Band
