Aster to give workshop at Harvard

Ethiopian queen of soul, Aster Aweke will be joining Harvard music students for a workshop, Ethiopiaca Link announced last night.

Aster would be talking about her careers and her thought on music and would also be performing some of her best hits during her stay from April 4 to 7.

The university would cover for her flight and all costs during traveling, it was said.

Aster’s songs would also be added to the Library of Congress National Recording Registry.

 Born in Gondar, Aster decided to become a musician when she was just 14.

While an established star at home four almost four decades, her international recognition came in 1990 with the release of her album, Kabu.

The album spent four weeks in the top position of the CMJ New Music Charts, and was in the top ten of Billboards world Music charts for ten weeks in 1990.
