Sarah Aroeste—Roberto Rodriguez Cuban-Sephardic Music Project

From Sarah Aroeste:

Sarah Aroeste, Roberto Rodriguez in Cuba

Over the past year Sarah Aroeste & Cuban-born musical collaborator, Roberto Rodriguez, have teamed up to create a project of all original, Sephardic-inspired, Cuban-infused music.

After recently returning from performing together in Havana, Cuba, this unique musical collaboration has taken off, but it needs your help!

In addition to developing their own music of original Cuban-Sephardic songs, Aroeste & Rodriguez are committed to helping promote Cuban Jewish life by working to build a Jewish Music Library based in Havana.

If you would like to donate Jewish music CD's or songbooks, please email us to learn how.

If you would like to make a financial contribution (any amount helps!) to support this important project to help keep Cuban Jewish music and culture alive, please make a secure donation (via paypal or credit card) through our fiscal sponsor Deep Listening Institute. All current donations will go towards supplying shelving and music players for the library.

All donations are tax-deductible.

To any who are able to contribute to this project, a sincere thank you in advance for participating in this very special cultural initiative. We look forward to updating you on the progress of the project and the library in the coming months...and please feel free to spread the word in the meantime!
