The concert with Meklit on Thursday, September 21 at 6:30 pm has been cancelled. We will be rescheduling her performance for a later date. We will be happy to honor all ticket registrations at the time.
Many thanks for your understanding and we’ll look forward to updating you with a new concert date.
“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.
This program is part of an ongoing series supported by Levitt Foundation and Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch ’74.
