Win FREE TICKETS to Meklit in Concert at Sanctuary for Independent Media on Saturday

Ethiopian-born, San Francisco-based soul-jazz-pop singer Meklit is in the midst of a short, five-night east coast tour, and we’re fortunate enough that for one of those nights she’ll be stepping into the spotlight at the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy.

The concert is slated for 7pm on Saturday (April 8).

Meklit’s music is imbued with poetry and multiplicity, from hybridized sounds of Tizita (haunting and nostalgic music) drawing from her Ethiopian heritage to jazz, pop, folk songs, hip-hop and art rock.

She aptly describes her music as simply emanating from “in-between-spaces.”

Tickets are available now, priced at $15.
