Meklit Hadero "Movement LIVE" Saturday October 28, 2023 
The UCLA Nimoy Theater 8PM

“Movement” reflects the increasingly permeable nature of 21st century music, a landscape in which sounds and artists travel rapidly across borders, upending longtime assumptions about who occupies the “center” and the “periphery.” — San Francisco Chronicle

Movement LIVE combines the energy of a concert with the intimacy of storytelling, in a podcast come to life. As the live component of a transmedia storytelling initiative — the project lives at the crossroads of migration and music, exploring a world in motion, redefining identity and what it takes to call a place home. Directed by acclaimed Indian-American theater director Sophiyaa Nayar, Movement LIVE hits listeners at the level of the hips, the heart, and the head. The performance is led by Ethiopian-American musician and cultural strategist Meklit Hadero, who for this show is joined by three Los Angeles-based guest artists: Mexican-American songwriter and performance artist San Cha, Palestinian-American oud virtuoso Clarissa Bitar, and Cambodian vocalist and Songwriter Chhom Nimol (of Dengue Fever).

Movement’s radio series debuted in 2020 as a nationally syndicated broadcast on PRX’s The World, and is now heard on over 300 radio stations around the US, reaching 2.5 million listeners monthly. The Movement podcast launched on streaming platforms in April of 2023.
