Atypical Arts Presents once again partners with the Jacksonville Museum of Science & History (MOSH) to present a unique, world class live music event. Our featured artist, in addition to being a critically acclaimed musical talent, is also a TED Senior Fellow and her TED Talk, The Unexpected Beauty of Everyday Sounds, has been watched by more than 1.2 million people.

It is with great pleasure that we get to introduce Jacksonville to the amazing musical talents of Meklit!



A wildly groovy style of music. - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Brilliant - NEW YORK MAGAZINE


Meklit is a celebrated, world renowned musical artist. Born in Ethiopia, Meklit is a former Brooklyn, NY resident, now based in Oakland, CA. Her music encapusulates her deep African roots, along with a wide range of musical influences from jazz, soul, blues and pop. Her latest record, the critically acclaimed When The People Move, The Music Does Too, is a collaboration with Grammy Award-winning songwriter/producer Dan Wilson (Adele, John Legend, Dixie Chicks) featuring guest appearances by Andrew Bird and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Meklit's record reached #4 on the iTunes World Music chart and has recently been named to numerous Best Of 2017 lists. As well, Meklit's live performance at Lincoln Center's Atrium has been selected as one of the best concerts in New York City in 2017! Join us for a fantastic evening of great music with a global beat!




When was the last time you had an hour of solid joy? On this album, Meklit—a singer whose Ethiopian roots blend with the sounds of her San Francisco hometown—has created a cornucopia of music that will resonate with jazz fiends, pop fans, and everyone in between. Each track is completely different than the last...but all of them speak to the individuality of its singer, and her divine ability to keep the listener at attention. - BANDCAMP: Best Soul Albums of 2017


...if you have any doubts that the musical styles of East Africa and the Bay Area can be melded with equal parts grit and grace, she'll knock them right out of you with vocals, horns and percussion — such exhilarating, heartbeat-propelling percussion — by the time the first chorus comes around. - NPR
