Ethiopian American singer-songwriter and composer Meklit on Oct. 5 will perform the L.A. debut of her new body of music, “This Was Made Here (TWMH)”. Playing like a soundtrack to an Ethiopian Diaspora experience, “TWMH” is a danceable celebration of Ethiopian grooves and pentatonic melodies, with bumping horn lines and inspirational lyrics. With two solo albums and three collaborative albums under her belt, the Ethiopian-born, Brooklyn-raised, and now San Francisco – based Meklit describes her energetic fusion of styles as emanating from “in-between-spaces.” She’s also a cultural activist, TED Senior Fellow and founder of the Nile Project. Her TED talk, “The Unexpected Beauty of Everyday Sounds,” has been watched by more than one million people. Meklit’s music combines a multitude of styles, from the tizita of her Ethiopian heritage, to jazz, folk, hip-hop and art rock. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 for general admission, $25 for Skirball members, and $20 for full-time students. The Skirball Cultural Center is located at 2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd. For information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
