Nina & Joni at Tea: Meklit Hadero Puts Sugar in the Bowl

Singer Meklit Hadero has been described as “if Joni Mitchell were East African and met Nina Simone for tea in San Francisco’s Mission District.” The description could not be more apt. As a general rule, comparisons to these two greats (nina and Joni) are wildly over used and often misplaced. But when launched to explain the lovely tone and powerful timbre of Hadero’s voice, it’s just perfect. The description is accurate.
Hadero, the children of Ehtiopian immigrants, raised in part in Brooklyn, NY and the West Coast. She is a TED Global Fellow and a really lovely talent. Know about her.
Listen to her interview on Tell Me More here and bask in the loveliness that is her voice here.
