New Album: Musical Tribute to Lost Sephardic Community of Monastir New Album, Monastir, Out Now!

The Monastir Project is a diplomatic and musical initiative to record memories of the Balkan Sephardic community of Monastir (known today as Bitola, North Macedonia). 98% of the city's Jewish population was wiped out in WWII, and this album works to bring back to life the music of that beloved community. The album includes 30+ musicians from Macedonia, Israel, Spain, Germany and the USA who came together, across borders and religions, to create this beautiful tribute - now available worldwide on all music platforms.

To learn more about the curation of the songs included in this album (each one has a specific story unique to the Jewish history of Monastir), you can listen and read all about it here:

ABOUT
With Ancestral roots in Macedonia (via Medieval Spain), American-born Sarah Aroeste works to reinvent Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) and Sephardic music for a new audience. Her style combines original and traditional Mediterranean Sephardic sounds with contemporary influences such as rock, pop, and jazz. One of few Ladino artists today who writes her own music today, Aroeste has earned a loyal following across the globe. In the last 20 years, Aroeste has toured internationally and released six recordings, A la Una: In the Beginning (2003), Puertas (2007), Gracia (May 2012), Ora de Despertar (2016), Together/Endjuntos (2017) and most recently, Monastir (2021). Bringing a fresh and inspiring sound to Sephardic music, Sarah Aroeste has helped transform and revitalize a tradition.
