About The Show

Apollo Music Café Featuring:
Meklit

Meklit is an Ethio-American vocalist, composer, and cultural instigator bringing together  EthioJazz with a singer-songwriter's storytelling and strum.  

Her new album - When the People Move, the Music Moves Too - was released June 23rd  on Six Degrees Records, receiving rave reviews and quickly reaching #4 on the iTunesWorld Music Charts. These 11 songs were deeply inspired by Mulatu Astatke (the Godfather of Ethio-Jazz). Back in 2011, he told Meklit, "find your contribution to Ethio-Jazz and keep on innovating!"

Produced by multi-GRAMMY winning artist/songwriter Dan Wilson (Adele, John Legend, Dixie Chicks), the album also features world renowned musicians Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the violinist/whistler Andrew Bird.
