Known for her electric stage presence and her galvanizing concerts, Meklit has rocked stages from Addis Ababa (where she is a household name) to San Francisco (her beloved base), as well as NYC, London, Montreal, Nairobi, Rome, and Cairo. The Ethio-American singer and composer returns to the Atrium with her new body of music, Antidote. Written as an ode to all that keeps us going in troubled times, the songs center connection, collective unity, music, creativity and the digging it takes to hold on to those life rafts that lift us. With Ethiopian jazz as a sonic palette, Antidote is grounded in Meklit’s work as a composer of migration music. Tonight, in this Lincoln Center commission, Meklit previews these songs for the community that called them forth.
