Meklit Hadero with The Reverie Machine

If Joni Mitchell were East African, sang duets with Norah Jones and met Nina Simone for tea in San Francisco, it just might remind you of Meklit Hadero. Born in Ethiopia, based in San Francisco for the past nine years, singer/composer/cultural activist Meklit continues to break down genres, whether covering indie pop-rock hits and making them her own, adapting traditional or popular Ethiopian songs, or collaborating on a hip-hop space opera or in her own exquisite and original solo work. In any case, as SFJAZZ says “Meklit has truly established herself as a modern queen of soul”.  Portland’s own The Reverie Machine kick off this special, seated show. 

Please see our updated pandemic policy for fall 2021. Indoor events at 538 Congress Street start in October!
