Born in Ethiopia, local musician Meklit Hadero lived all over the map until she landed in San Francisco almost eight years ago. The singer-songwriter was a resident artist with the de Young museum, is a TED Global fellow, and worked with the Red Poppy Art House and the Mission Arts and Performance Project.
Tune in this Thursday to Africa Mix, when Emmanuel Nado's guest will be Ethiopian-born, San Francisco-based singer songwriter Meklit Hadero.
Meklit erupted to national notice with the 2010 release of her CD "On a Day Like This" bringing her music to a whole new audience. She performs next Friday, March 23rd at the Herbst Theater for SFJazz. Hear her on KALW this Thursday at 9pm.
