Asnaketch Worku ‘Ethiopia’s Edith Piaf’
A new film looks at the life of the Ethiopian singer, actor and dancer Asnaketch Worku, who the film’s director calls “Ethiopia’s Edith Piaf”.
Rachael Samuel’s new film is called Asni and focuses on the life of the musician.
Asnaketch was deemed very controversial in the Ethiopia of the 1950s and 60s, which was a very conservative country at the time.
