“She sings of fragility, hope and self-empowerment, and exudes all three. What’s irresistible, above all, is her cradling, sensuous, gentle sound. She is stunning.”
—The San Francisco Chronicle
Meklit’s fusion of jazz and folk is filtered through her native Ethiopian musical lens. A Yale graduate who now calls San Francisco home, her music is wry and exuberant—one only need watch the video for “Kemekem [I Like Your Afro]” to appreciate this subtle and mesmerizing songstress.
