Levitt on the Lawn: Meklit

"Levitt on the Lawn: Meklit"

Bowling Green

“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 presented in partnership with Reunion Weekend and is part of an ongoing series supported by the Levitt Foundation and Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch ’74.
