Asnakech Worku
Awesome Tapes From Africa
Catalogue Number
Release Date
November 16, 2018


With thanks to Awesome Tapes From Africa, the rest of the world now has access to the work of Asnakech Worku, one of modern Ethiopia’s best-loved cultural icons. From her beginnings as Ethiopia’s first stage actress in the early 50s to her death in 2011, Worku dazzled and fought her way through a misogynist half-century to perform flawlessly in much of anything she put to record, whether stellar originals or arrangements of traditional songs, virtuosically rendered on her krar harp.
