Claremont, 91711

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 to appreciate this subtle and mesmerizing songstress. "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," writes The San Francisco Chronicle.This program is part of an ongoing series supported by Levitt Foundation and Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch '74.
