Thurs, 5/3 @ 7:30pm--Emerging from her adopted hometown of San Francisco, Meklit erupted to national notice with the 2010 release of “On a Day Like this…,” combining “New York jazz with West Coast folk and African flourishes, all bound together by Hadero’s beguiling voice,” her full-length debut — which also garnered feature-stories on its maker from NPR, PBS, National Geographic and YouTube Music Pick in Sept. All have brought Meklit’s music to a whole new audience. A sheer joy to experience, this artist on the verge of worldwide stardom joins us tonight with her band featuring Darrell Green on drums, Darren Johnston on trumpet. A night of soulful world/folk/jazz and cocktails at lantern lit cabaret tables.

At the Ohser Marin JCC 5/3/12

Meklit Hadero

“an artistic giant in the early stages.” The San Francisco Chronicle

This Singer/Songwriter is not limited to what you hear on her first CD; Meklit Hadero is a TED Senior Fellow, and, as such, will be developing over the next 2 years an immense musical journey down several of the countries of the Nile Treaty in her Nile Project .She has a hip hop album in collaboration with 2 prominent emcees coming out in April known as “Copperwire”, and another of duet covers of indie rock hits around the same time.

Constantly busy between touring, recording and planning the Nile Project, her gigs range from San Francisco’s classic rock club, The Independent, to a month-long artist residency at NYU while curating weekly shows at Lincoln Center's Atrium; she was a Bumberpick (along with Mavis Staples) at Bumbershoot in Sept. and in October she did a 5 day residency at the International Ringling Festival in Sarasota, FL (curated by Baryshnikov himself), and Misha liked her so much he insisted on presenting her at the Baryshnikov Performing Arts Center in NYC.
