‘mek’ ya swoon.
Below are a handful of photos from last Wednesday’s acoustic set from the Bay Area’s ‘MEKLIT’ HADERO, taken at Balch Auditorium at Scripps College in Claremont, CA. She mesmerized the intimate but enthusiastic crowd with an aurally stripped-down acoustic trio set, featuring only guitar, upright bass, and percussion. Meklit’s fine repertoire of jazz, soul and pop blend with East African sensibilities, thanks to her Ethiopian-American heritage. I bought two of her albums on cd, shown below. Cop ’em and let your friends know!
