WUWM Lake Effect: Sarah Aroeste

WUWM Lake Effect’s Bonnie North interviews Ladino singer Sarah Aroeste. Listen to “Preserving the Endangered Ladino Culture Through Music.”

Before 1492, Ladino was the language everyone spoke in Spain, but it left when the Jews were expelled from the country. Contemporary Ladino singer Sarah Aroeste’s family were among those who left Spain, taking the medieval language with them.
