Aster Aweke was born in Ethiopia and began her musical career in her late teens. She has a beautiful yet powerful voice. And much of her musical is lively and danceable. To me, she sounds more Middle-Eastern than African. But that's just me. Aweke became disillusioned with the Ethiopian government and moved to the United States in 1981. She now lives in Washing D.C. but frequently tours the world. She has several cds.
