Details:"I've always felt most at home in multiplicity," says Meklit Hadero. " And she should know: born in Ethiopia, raised in the US and nurtured by San Francisco's richly diverse arts scene, this acclaimed singer embodies worlds. Joining distinctive phrasing to a soul-filled performing style, her vocal gifts are matched to a songwriter's craft. With mercurial lyrics and unique melodic sense, her music's influences range wide -- from the jazz and soul favorites she grew up on; to the hip-hop and art-rock she loves; to folk traditions from the Americas and her forebears' East African home. But this singular artist's sound, drawn of multitudes, is hers alone.

Emerging from her adopted hometown of San Francisco, Meklit erupted to national notice with the 2010 release of "On a Day Like this…" on Porto Franco Records. Hailed by Filter magazine for "[combining] New York jazz with West Coast folk and African flourishes, all bound together by Hadero's beguiling voice," her full-length debut -- which also garnered feature-stories on its maker from NPR, PBS and National Geographic -- brought Meklit's music to a whole new audience. It also announced the arrival, as the San Francisco Chronicle has put it, of "an artistic giant in the early stages."
