This marvelous jazz and traditional singer was born and raised in Ethiopia and now makes the San Francisco Bay Area her home. Meklit has catapulted into the public eye with several features and interviews on National Public Radio’s All Songs Considered. Her music: sultry jazz with gorgeous vocals interspersed with traditional Ethiopian songs that have an Afrobeat punch.
