At the age of 12, the Ethiopian-born Meklit Hadero left Brooklyn and called several cities home before settling in San Francisco. Now, after the release of her debut album ‘On A Day Like This’ in April, Meklit will be taking center stage in New York for the first time.
This past Friday Meklit performed to a sold out crowd at Bernos’ 4th Anniversary Celebration in Washington D.C. and on Tuesday, June 1st, New Yorkers will get a chance to see what the buzz is all about. Meklit will be performing at (Le) Poisson Rouge, a state-of-the art performance venue located in Greenwich Village and she is “really, really excited” about the performance. She describes New York-one of her 12 hometowns-as the “Center of Culture.” In addition to touring the United States and Europe, for the remainder of the year, Meklit will also be performing in Ethiopia this December.
Live performances in one of Meklit’s hometowns are extra special for her because “it gives me an opportunity to meet up with old friends.”
Opening up for Meklit will be ‘The Olatuja Project’.
