Meklit Hadero

Born in Ethiopia, raised in the US and nurtured for the last several years in San Francisco’s rich arts scene, Meklit Hadero’s musical explorations span genres and geographies. Hadero is a vocalist, songwriter, cultural activist, TEDGlobal Fellow, founder of the Arba Minch Collective, and Resident Artist at the Red Poppy Art House — an interdisciplinary arts and performance space in San Francisco. Hadero’s recent album, On a Day Like This, “combines jazz with West Coast folk and African flourishes, all bound together by Hadero’s beguiling voice, which is part sunshine and part cloudy day” (Nevin Martell, Filter Magazine).

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSeattle, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSeattle event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
