Meklit discusses the track Slow

Biography

“We’re in-betweeners, living along the musical hyphen lines,” says the creative Ethiopian-born Meklit (Muh-Kleet) of her relationship with her new record label. As both are open- minded and based in the Bay Area, the partnership seemed natural to this emerging singer-songwriter. The compatibility is evident as Meklit canvases a wide range of sounds on her most inventive album ... Read more in Amazon's Meklit Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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. Meklit is a true modern global singer and songwriter: born in Ethiopia, raised in the US and nurtured for the last several years by San Francisco's richly diverse arts scene. Add in her warm and luminous singing voice, and song writing that veers from the starkly personal to the poetically metaphoric, and you have her entrancing debut full-length recording.

Review

Once you hear her smooth and silky voice it will be hard to forget it. --Allison Keyes, NPR

The Ethiopian-born artist has been attracting national attention with the release of her new album On A Day Like This. Reviewers have compared her voice to that of the legendary singer Nina Simone. --Dig Ethiopia, 2010

Format: Audio CD
Meklit (pronounced muh-kleet) Hadero's debut album "on a day like this..." is well worth hearing, again and again. Her voice is pure, her singing is creative, and her style original. You could call it a form of jazz improvisation, though not scat singing. She caresses the sounds of the lyrics and bends them around in a rhythmic and musically expressive way, and it's flowing from the heart, quite naturally. Each song is a poem in a different instrumental texture, including upright bass, smoky trumpet, and mellow cello. If you need any more encouragement, check out her music video of "leaving soon" on You Tube. After listening to that I went to hear Meklit with her band this summer at Stern Grove in San Francisco and bought the CD.

I could barely turn this cd off to watch a video clip of an interview with Meklit her record label posted on their Facebook page. She's been compared to Nina Simone. (Jump back!) But Meklit's voice is like no other it's all her own. This record is so, so beautiful.

Original take on music, very listenable either in background or intently. She does wonderful things with her voice in ways I haven't heard before.
