Original work from Tsion Assefa 8" X 10" Framed Print
The masenqo is a single-stringed bowed lute instrument commonly found in Eritrean and Ethiopian traditional music. Its unique bow and single horsehair string are used to make tones that fit the range of the singer's voice. Transitioning from low to high tones, masenqo artists sing passionate poems and age-old stories while using the instrument as an extension of their voice.
