Sounds of Africa: Meklit Hadero

It seems like every week there is at least one artist where I find myself utterly shocked that I haven't shared him/her with you. This week, it's Ethiopian (SF-based) artist Meklit Hadero. Porto Franco Records says the following about her...

"If Joni Mitchell were East African and met Nina Simone for tea in San Francisco's Mission District, she might end up sounding like Meklit Hadero"

....and I honestly couldn't agree more. She has the prefect hippy vibe of Joni and the soulful sound of Nina all wrapped up in African goodness! I'm all for it. Click the picture to hear exactly what I'm talking about....
