Meklit is an Oakland based Ethio-Jazz singer, composer, and cultural instigator. Her unique sound brings together pentatonic horns, high energy East African rhythms, and a singer-songwriter's storytelling and strum. Tonight she performs songs from her new album, When the People Move, the Music Moves Too.

Istanbul Connection is a Bay Area musical collective formed when thirteen members of the hottest Balkan and Latin bands were gravitationally pulled to visit the city of Istanbul. 7,000 miles later, they have cemented themselves as a supergroup of groove, performing sold-out-show after sold-out-show. They continue to draw their inspiration from the Turkish Maqam, Flamenco, Rumba, Balkan, and Cumbia they are so deeply rooted in. Come prepared to dance!

Lalin is a Haitian-American singer/songwriter. A self-taught musician with a knack for melting hearts, Lalin's music explores identity, the power of rewriting narratives, and the nuances of intimacy alongside our relationships to ourselves, each other, and our present-day and historical context. Possessing a firm belief that the personal is political, Lalin is inspired by a lineage running from Erykah Badu to Nick Drake. She creates an electro-acoustic set that seeks to engage your heart while you bob your head.
