“Soulful, tremulous…cinematic…” – Seattle Times
If Joni Mitchell were East African and met Nina Simone for tea in San Francisco’s Mission District, she might end up sounding like Meklit Hadero. Born in Ethiopia, raised stateside and nurtured for the last several years in San Francisco, Meklit has a warm and luminous singing voice and a lyrical songwriting pen that moves from the starkly personal to the poetically metaphoric. Her entrancing debut full-length recording, On a Day Like This… was released by Porto Franco Records in April 2010 and embodies her current life in San Francisco.
Meklit Hadero – vocals and guitar
