I want To Sing For Them All(Single)

Meklit’s new album – When The People Move, The Music Moves Too – comes out today June, 23 2017 on Six Degrees records, and is produced by multi-GRAMMY winning singer-songwriter/producer Dan Wilson (Adele, John Legend).  Mulatu Astatke – the Godfather of Ethio-Jazz, inspired this album with a directive to Meklit back in 2011. He told her, “find your contribution to Ethio-Jazz and keep on innovating!”  His words sparked these 11 celebratory songs, born of of a hyphenated Ethio-American identity, as Oakland as they are Addis. The record features world renowned musicians Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the violinist/whistler Andrew Bird.
