Vocalist and guitarist Susan Gaeta is an important member of a new generation of musicians who are exploring the rich and varied traditions of Sephardic music. Susan lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina for eight years, where she performed classic jazz and traditional Argentinian folk songs. After moving back to the United States, Susan continued her explorations in jazz and toured with legendary Sephardic singer Flory Jagoda, a National Heritage Fellow. Susan is currently a Master Artist in the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities teaching and continuing Flory Jagoda’s work. Susan was chosen to apprentice the beloved Charlottesville singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gina Sobel in 2017-2018.
Susan celebrates a story that many have never heard before. It’s a story so important and enriching that it transports its listeners through time, and they are awakened by “a voice of lyrical purity and a heart of graceful nuance and respect” for the very people she sings about.
