Beschreibung

- Backed by Hailu Mergia - Legendary singer/instrumentalist at her mid-1970s prime - Double LP carefully extracted from cassette and remastered by ATFA family engineer Jessica Thompson There is perhaps no woman more cherished in modern Ethiopian history than Asnakech Worku.

As a musician, actress, dancer and cultural icon, Asnakech inspired and challenged society for decades, until her death in 2011.

From her beginnings as Ethiopia's first theater actress in 1952 to her climb to become one of the most famous actresses at the National Theater to her days as a club owner-turned-master musician, Asnakech's inimitable confidence and charm made her a household name.

She earned endless accolades across the artistic spectrum. She made seminal recordings of unforgettable original compositions, as well as legendary renditions of traditional songs, that became national staples.

With a singular sense of style, glamour and sex appeal that sometimes stunned mainstream society, Asnakech wore clothes no one else wore and said things no one else said.

Staid notions of how women should dress and behave didn't apply to her. Battling a mentality that until the early 1950s had men wearing dresses to play female roles in the theater, Asnakech became a national treasure on her own terms.

Her family wasn't pleased with Asnakech becoming an azmari_an itinerant praise musician who sings, often in bars, for tips_and didn't bother her, especially after Emperor Haile Selassie I began to emphasize theater and music in society, officially legitimizing her career.

Asnakech became an internationally-celebrated performer of Ethiopia's ancient harp, the krar, making her one of the most visible female musicians of the 20th century.

All this while leaving controversy, broken hearts and a changed cultural landscape in her wake.

In 1975, keyboardist and bandleader Hailu Mergia got a call from the owner of Misratch Music Shop to do a recording with Asnakech and he went for it.
