Meklit
Meklit is an Ethio-American singer-songwriter/composer and TED Senior Fellow. Her music sits on the hyphen line, as Oakland as it is Addis Ababa. Her third record When The People Move, The Music Moves Too, has been receiving rave reviews since it’s June 23rd release on Six Degrees Records. The album was produced by multi-GRAMMY winning artist/songwriter Dan Wilson (Adele, John Legend, Dixie Chicks) and features Andrew Bird and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Meklit is a TED Senior Fellow and her TED Talk, The Unexpected Beauty of Everyday Sounds, has been watched by more than 1.2 million people. She has received musical commissions from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and the MAP Fund and has toured extensively across the US, UK, and East Africa. Meklit has been an artist-in-residence at NYU, Purdue, and the de Young Museum and has collaborated with NASA Astrophysicist Jon Jenkins, the BBC Philharmonic, musical legend Pee Wee Ellis, and sang alongside Angelique Kidjo and Anoushka Shankar as a featured singer in the UN Women Theme Song. In 2011, Meklit co-founded the Nile Project with Egyptian Ethnomusicologist Mina Girgis, which the New York Times called "a committed, euphoric, international coalition."
