Meklit Hadero is a lovely musician. Her stage presence is what Jolie Holland should aim to be..haha...Meklit is so energetic, sweet, confident, gorgeous...and she sings just like her image. Lovely woman, lovely music and the Triple door just exemplified all of that more. Meklit's band was outstanding as well.
Quotes & Highlights
“Hadero’s sound is a unique blend of jazz, Ethiopia, the San Francisco art scene and visceral poetry; it paints pictures in your head as you listen.” —NPR
(Hadero) is an artistic giant in the early stages. 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." —_San Francisco Chronicle _
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. Hadero is a true modern global artist: born in Ethiopia, raised in US and nurtured for the last several years in San Francisco’s richly diverse arts scene. Add in a warm and luminous singing voice and lyrical songwriting that moves from the starkly personal to the poetically metaphoric, and you have her entrancing debut full-length recording, On a Day Like This…, released by Porto Franco Records on April 20th, 2010.
Her first musical performance was five years ago, when she spent 20 minutes covering other artists’ music. The Ethiopian-born Hadero spent the majority of her childhood in Brooklyn before moving away when she was 12. After relocating to San Francisco, she left college, where she was studying political science, and began focusing more seriously on music.
