Meklit is an Ethio-American singer, composer, and TED Senior Fellow based in the the San Francisco Bay Area. Her new album, When the People Move, the Music Moves Too, gets its wings this June on Six Degrees Records. Come and celebrate at the CD Release Party at SubRosa.
Deeply inspired by Ethio-Jazz, this is pentatonic music, born at the intersection of Addis Ababa and Oakland, East Africa and the West Coast. The album was produced by multi-GRAMMY winner Dan Wilson (Adele, John Legend) and features world renowned musicians Andrew Bird and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Entertainment Weekly calls Meklit’s sound, “A wildly groovy style of music.”
