“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

Born in Ethiopia, raised in the U.S. and nurtured by San Francisco’s richly diverse arts scene, acclaimed singer-songwriter Meklit Hadero embodies multiple worlds. Her music’s influences range wide – from the jazz and soul favourites she grew up on; to the hip-hop and art-rock she loves; to folk traditions from the Americas and her forebears’ East African home. She gained national attention with her 2010 debut album, On A Day Like This, which features her original songs and traditional Amharic melodies. Since then she has collaborated with artists including African hip-hop project CopperWire and R&B artist Quinn DeVeaux, as well as playing to sold-out houses at the SFJAZZ Center and beyond.
