Meklit Hadero returns to the JCC with her trio and special guest Quinn Deveaux for a night of beautiful voice & music. Compared to such legends as Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, and Tori Amos, Ethiopian born Meklit Hadero writes and performs songs influenced by jazz, soul, folk and her heritage. The talented singer-songwriter based in the Bay area is an extraordinarily accomplished writer with a unique voice, demonstrates exceptional grace and charm, and actively pursues a socially and politically committed agenda.
Since its release, her first cd "On a Day Like This" has been a favorite with critics and media and continues to garner interest with a piece on PBS last August, a new "featured artist" slot on Google Music, a full feature on PRI last August , and YouTube Music Pick in Sept.
