Meklit Hadero – Herself

Meklit Hadero, Meklit Hadero everyone. The transnational songstress floats through Impresa! and breaks down the logic of following intuition.

Meklit Hadero’s music is imbued with poetry and multiplicity, from hybridized sounds of Tizita (haunting and nostalgic music) drawing from her Ethiopian heritage, to the annals of jazz, folk songs, hip-hop and art rock. Drawing from the concept of the “inbetween”, Meklit’s music transports us to the post-national space of Africa and the Americas, inspiring us to bridge the frontiers between language, tribes and disciplines. Her songs celebrate the newness of life and the hyphens that bring us together.
