Legendary singer/instrumentalist at her mid-1970s prime and backed by Hailu Mergia. 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-turnedmaster musician, Asnakech’s inimitable confidence and charm made her a household name
