Sarit Hadad was born in Hadero on 20/9/78 and named Sara Hodedtov. She is
the youngest daughter to a family of four boys and four girls, all of whom
Sarit was the only one who insisted on realizing her musical talents and making
them a profession. Already at the age of 8 she would sneak out of her parents'
home and appear as a "wonder child" in clubs. At the age of 10 she
enrolled in a youth talent contest held in Hadera, and the review published
following the contest said: "The surprise was the pianist Sara, a young
girl who played classical music wonderfully by ear and does not read music." When
Sarit's secret performances were discovered, her parents guarded her strictly,
forbidding her to leave the house alone.
During the period when she wasn't performing, Sarit used her amazing musical
talents to teach herself to play the organ, the guitar, drums, the accordion,
the darbuka, and other instruments.
At the age of 15 she joined the Hadera Youth band, and through these performances
she met Avi Gueta, who has been her agent ever sice. He succeeded in persuading
her parents to stop ignoring her unprecedented talent, which should be cultivated.
