ABOUT THIS RELEASE

“Georgia Anne Muldrow built this beat from scratch. She took only the vocals and the horns and recreated the song, turning it into a dreamscape you can dance to. With a deep musical lineage, a composer’s mind, and a hip-hop heart, working with her was a match made in heaven. Black girl magic to the skies and back!” -Meklit
The track premiered on WNYC’s New Sounds who writes “When the People Move, the Music Moves Too earned acclaim from a wide range of tastemaket outlets including New York Magazine, Vibe.com, Gizmodo, Okayafrica and PopMatters, who said “With her latest masterpiece, Meklit has affirmed her place among her childhood heroes: at the shining crossroads of two cultures, making truly moving music.”
Meklit has embodied multiplicity since she first started performing at San Francisco’s Red Poppy Art House in the mid-2000’s. Born in Ethiopia, she moved with her family to Iowa at the age of two, and spent much of her adolescence in Brooklyn, soaking up the sounds of hip hop on the street. After studying political science at Yale she spent several years in Seattle before moving to San Francisco, looking to immerse herself in the city’s thriving arts scene.
