    Meklit

    Ethiopia

    Meklit's new album was released June, 23 2017 on Six Degrees records, and within hours went to #4 on the iTunes World Music Charts. The record was 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.

    "Get into Meklit." - VIBE MAGAZINE

    "Brilliant." NEW YORK MAGAZINE 

    - "With her latest masterpiece, Meklit has affirmed her place among her childhood heroes: at the shining crossroads of two cultures, making truly moving music."  POPMATTERS

  • Istanbul Connection

    Istanbul Connection

    World

    Istanbul Connection is a Bay Area musical collective formed when thirteen members of the hottest Balkan and Latin bands were gravitationally pulled to visit the city of Istanbul. With a mind towards cross-cultural connection and sonic expansion, these die-hards flew 7,000 miles to represent a piece of the the Bay Area music scene. In the process, they have cemented themselves as a supergroup of groove and since their epic beginnings, the band has performed sold-out-show after sold-out-show. They continue to draw their inspiration from the Turkish Maqam, Flamenco, Rumba, Balkan, and Cumbia they are are so deeply rooted in. Come prepared to dance!
