Meklit Hadero is an Ethiopian American vocalist, singer-songwriter and composer, making music that sways between cultures and continents. She will join Alicia Anstead NF '08, associate director for programming at the Office for the Arts and arts journalist, for a conversation about the role of music in civic leadership and activism. The event is free and open to the public. All are welcome.  

Known for her electric stage presence, innovative take on Ethio-Jazz, and fiery, emotive live shows, Hadero has rocked stages from Addis Ababa (where she is a household name) to San Francisco (her beloved home-base) and beyond. Hadero will be in residency March 26-29 in a partnership with the Learning from Performers program at the Office for the Arts at Harvard, the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Harvard Department of Music.
