Meklit delivers a sound all her own…[We Are Alive] gets even better with each listen  - USA TODAY

I've been listening to Meklit for days. This new album will INVOLVE you! – NPR's ANN POWERS

A blithe-voiced daughter of Joni who considers music a path to higher ground, with rest stops for the likes of Talking Heads and Lou Reed – THE VILLAGE VOICE

“You may not have heard Meklit Hadero’s music before, but once you do, it’ll be tough to forget. 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

“Soulful, tremulous and strangely cinematic, Hadero’s voice will implant scenes in your mind — a softly lit supperclub, a Brooklyn stoop, a sun-baked road. Close your eyes, listen and dream. - SEATTLE TIMES

 

[MEKLIT] has perfected a folky/jazzy style…a mix of Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones and Nina Simone – CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

Meklit… combines N.Y. jazz with West Coast folk and African flourishes, all bound together by her beguiling voice, which is part sunshine and part cloudy day.” - FILTER MAGAZINE

Lilting, sensuous, capable of the leap from staccato jazz-cat to honeyed songbird, she conveys both fragility and great strength in a single line – SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN (*cover story)

“She is stunning.” SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

Blown away by "We Are Alive," the new album by @meklitmusic, one of the greatest jazz singer-songwriters of our time. - MARIA POPOVA, BRAIN PICKINGS

“Meklit Hadero is one of those rare artists with the power to bridge genres, geography and generations.” -GOOGLE MUSIC
