On Saturday, May 21 at 8 p.m. the Churchill Arts Council will present Meklit. The council’s website describes her as an Ethio-American vocalist, songwriter, and composer who is known for her electric stage presence and innovative, deeply personal Ethio-Jazz songs. Her performances have taken her around the world, from Addis Ababa - where she is a full-blown star - to San Francisco, NYC, Chicago, Nairobi, Cairo, Montreal, London, Zurich, Rome, Helsinki, and many more. Meklit’s latest album “When the People Move, the Music Moves Too” was named among the best records of the year by Bandcamp and The Sunday Times UK, climbing to the top of the iTunes, NACC, and European World Charts.
Meklit is Chief of Program at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. She is a National Geographic Explorer, a TED Senior Fellow, and a former Artist-in-Residence at Harvard University. She has collaborated with the likes of Kronos Quartet, Andrew Bird, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and musical legend Pee Wee Ellis.

The box office, Art Bar, and the art galleries will all be open starting at 7 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at that time. More information about the Arts Council and upcoming performances can be found on their website,
