Shortly after moving to San Francisco five years ago, Meklit Hadero began performing her songs in the Mission District for friends. Since then, she has grown into one of the Bay Area’s most beloved musical figures: a spellbinding singer and brilliant songwriter whose sound, while evoking her Ethiopian homeland and wide range of influences, remains based in the jazz and folk idioms she’s made her own. With Portofranco Records’ release of Meklit’s debut full-length album, “On a Day Like This…,” this local artist with a burgeoning global profile is taking her stunning music to the masses. On May 13 at Bimbo’s, Meklit will celebrate her CD release with a gala concert in San Francisco’s most beautiful room. With a star-studded bill of luminaries from the roots music scene, the evening will feature artists ranging from Quinn Deveaux and the Blue Beat Review to swing favorite Lavay Smith, Guthrie-acolyte Sam Doores and the inimitable opera diva, Janeanne Anderson, among other secret special guests.
 
With tunes by DJ Jeremiah Kpoh, hosting by Thandiwe, and art from the Great Tortilla Conspiracy, this will be a night to remember. A spectacular celebration of the city and scenes that have nurtured remarkable artist, Meklit’s CD release concert will also be, for all those lucky enough to catch this shooting star on May 13, proof positive of where she's headed.

 


Please RSVP here for the meet and greet with Meklit!!!
