More Info:

Born in Ethiopia, based in San Francisco for the past nine years , singer/composer/cultural activist Meklit became a sensation with the release of her debut 'On a Day Like This'; in April, 2010. NPR called her sound, 'a unique blend of jazz, Ethiopia, the San Francisco art scene and visceral poetry ; it paints pictures in your head as you listen.' PBS said 'You'll hear hints of Billie Holliday , Tracy Chapman and Joni Mitchell in her music but Meklit is her own unique creation.' The San Francisco Chronicle called Meklit ' artistic giant in the early stages . She is stunning.'


She continues to break down genres, whether covering indie pop-rock hits and making them her own , adapting traditional or popular Ethiopian songs , or collaborating on a hip-hop space opera or in her own exquisite and original solo work. In any case, as SFJAZZ says 'Meklit has truly established herself as a modern queen of soul'. Her lastest release, We Are Alive , was produced by Eli Crews (tUnEyArDs, Geographer, Deerhoof)
