Meklit
«Get into Meklit.» — VIBE MAGAZINE

«Brilliant.» — NEW YORK MAGAZINE

— «With her latest masterpiece, Meklit has affirmed her place among her childhood heroes: at the shining crossroads of two cultures, making truly moving music.» — POPMATTERS

«A wildly groovy style of music.» — ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

— "...if you have any doubts that the musical styles of East Africa and the Bay Area can be melded with equal parts grit and grace, she'll knock them right out of you with vocals, horns and percussion — such exhilarating, heartbeat-propelling percussion — by the time the first chorus comes around." — NPR

«To understand Meklit’s story, you must first place yourself in front of a map and open up your ears. It’s only then that her music can hit you with full force—and trust us, when it does, you’ll be happy you’re knocked off your feet.» — DIG BOSTON

— «You Need to Hear Meklit’s Ethiopian Cover of The Roots’ Classic “You Got Me” — OKAY AFRICA
