Asmara, the Culture Capital of the Tigrinya Language

Asmara's rapid infrastructure development of the 1930s and early 1940s helped kick-start the modernization of Tigrinya language, arts and music 

Asmara, the Culture Capital of the Tigrinya Language

By Makhate Berhane,

When I hear the word Asmara, I immediately see a stream of images in my head. Old men in classy tweed blazers worthy of tenured college professors, sitting at a local café conversing about the day’s top issues while occasionally taking long sips of their espressos; children selling gum out of boxes on the street; groups of uniform clad high school students walking home from class while simultaneously making plans on how they’re going to spend the rest of the day. I see all of these images against the breathtakingly beautiful backdrop of Asmara’s art deco buildings, reminiscent of Rome, the city that Asmara was modeled after by the Italian colonizers in the 19th and 20th century.

The history of Asmara’s founding is so eerily fitting, that it seems as if it were made up at a later date. It’s said that Asmara came about as a truce that was created and backed by the women of four clans who were constantly at war against one another. The area that Asmara inhabited was being preyed on by local bandits, and the women decided that the four clans who inhabited the land, should unite in order to combat them. The four clans agreed to unite, and the name Arbate Asmara was adopted, which translates to “the four are united” in English. As time progressed, Arbata was dropped from the official name of the city, however there is a district in Asmara today called Arbate Asmara in tribute to the original name. To this day, Asmara enjoy general peace and stability even though it’s a bustling metropolis. Muslims, Christians, and people of differing ethnicities live together in the same neighborhoods in sound and solid harmony.

It’s a bittersweet reality that the Italian colonizers played a major role in morphing Asmara into the cultural center that it is today, and has been for the last one hundred or so years. The physical infrastructure that they constructed, alone, is a significant factor. The Italian architects essentially had free reign to create a new world from scratch and they ran with it. The leaps in education, sanitation, healthcare and modern governance that came along with the Italians cannot be discounted. For fear of seeming Uncle Tom-ish, I want to unequivocally state that many Eritreans, myself included, resent the colonization of our precious Eritrea, or any other country in Africa for that matter. That being said, I realize that rapid modernization came hand-in-hand with the colonization of our land.

The form of Tigrinya spoken in Asmara is generally considered to be the purest form of Tigrinya. The acceptance of this form of Tigrinya stretches even into the borders of Eritrea’s neighbor, Ethiopia, among the Tigray people. Even though accents of Tigrinya differ, even within the regions of Eritrea, Asmara-Tigrinya is the standard to most native Tigrinya speakers.

The music scene in Asmara is known for setting the standard of Tigrinya music for the rest of Eritrea and even Tigray, in Ethiopia. This trend can be traced to the 20th century when a musical revolution took place in Eritrea. Years of oppression of the Eritrean people by the Italians, then British and then Ethiopia forced Eritreans to vent their frustration through creative means. Eritreans not only took up arms to fight the yoke of the consecutive oppressive regimes, they also took up musical instruments. Eritrean artists resorted to writing and performing music with coded messages in them to offer support and dreams of a brighter future to their countrymen and women. The most famous of these coded songs is Meley by Bereket Mengisteab, a song that he wrote and composed in the 1960’s, and Shigey Habuni by Tewolde Redda which came about in the same time period.

Another major contribution that modernized Eritrean music, is the establishment of Mahber Theatre Asmara, nicknamed MaT’A for short. This musical troupe was instrumental in discovering, training and creating new musical talents. To this day, artists who belonged to this troupe are regarded as some of Eritrea’s finest artists. The above mentioned Bereket Mengisteab and Tewolde Redda were members of the legendary troupe, as were many famous other such as Ateweberhan Segid, Haile Ghebru, Teberih Tesfahuney, Osman Abdelrehim, Tikabo Woldemariam (the father of one of Eritrea’s current biggest stars, Wedi Tikabo), and Yemane Barya. It should also be noted that the invention of the electric krar by the above mentioned Ateweberhan Segid aided in modernizing Eritrean music. It’s no coincidence that MaT’A was founded in 1961, just a few months before the start of Eritrea’s thirty year armed struggle for independence from Ethiopia.

Another key factor in the modernization of Eritrean music can be traced to 1960’s and 1970’s with the influx of young US soldiers at Kagnew Station, a listening base for the American Army during the Cold War. These young G.I.’s brought with them to Eritrea, musical records of the biggest artists of that time such as Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Jimmy Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and James Brown. The influence that these major American and British musical acts had on Eritrean music is evident when listening to records from that era, especially in the music of Haile Ghebru, Engineer Asgedom and Tewolde Redda.

Eritrean cinema has steadily progressed since independence and has progressed at an even faster rate following the ending of the Ethiopia-Eritrea Border War. A few Eritrean films have even made it to prestigious international film festivals. Many of the films are very reminiscent of the dramas of Ancient Greece in that they are very dramatic and often times a wise societal lesson is deeply ingrained in the film.

It has been pointed out in several different articles, a few even published on, that Eritrean-Tigrinya music and films are more popular in the Tigray region of Ethiopia than their own respective music and films. Personally, I first learned of this phenomenon when a family friend, who is from Tigray, had a male relative in his early thirties, migrate to the US. I was stunned to find out that this gentleman and I shared a similar taste in Tigrinya music. His favorite singers were not only Eritrean, but they were the most popular artists at the moment. He named off some of his favorite as Elsa Kidane, Wedi Tikabo, Korchach and Helen Meles. I was shocked. He informed me that the satellites in Tigray pick up Eri-TV signals and that most people prefer to watch Eri-TV programs over those on the Ethiopian channels.

There is a phenomenon of Ethiopian singers “remaking” celebrated songs by Eritrean artists and passing them off as their own, to the constant ire of many Eritreans who feel that it’s a form of cultural and artistic theft. This has been happening for years now, but as of late, it seems to have become a more heated topic of debate within the Eritrean community as these songs continue to soar in popularity within the Ethiopian and Eritrean community. To me, this is the final straw that solidifies Asmara as the cultural capital of the Tigrinya language.

  1. Because I don't have a current picture, not that it matters. But I think a current pic would make you even more upset, seeing that Mai Jah Jah area has been renovated this year.


    "In line with the government's ongoing efforts to refurbish parts of Asmara, state media said Asmara's Mai Jah Jah Fountain and its environs are being renovated at a cost of more than 8 million Nakfa (US$532,000).

    According to Abraham Haile, Administrator of Geza-Banda sub-zone, construction of walls, installation of electricity, water and other lines has already been completed. He added the placement of public toilets, water reservoir and other amenities are underway.

    In an effort to make the site green, the coordinator of the project, Yosef Tewolde, said a number of trees and flowers would be planted in the area along with the erecting of park seats, solar energy-powered light poles and other decorations.

  2. There is some truth to what you said about tigrians listening to eritrean music, but it is not the whole truth. It is way too much exagirated . Most of them who like to listen to eritrean music are those from northern Tigrai who lives near the border with eritrea , because they grew up listening eritrean music when eritrea was part of ethiopia.. All those artists that you metion were as much popular in tigrai as in eritrea. But as you go south in tigrai it is a whole lot different matter. They don't even understand the eritrean accent and the music. Modern music in Tigrai is a recent fanomen of some twenty years but believe me they are catching up. Some of the talented artists in tigrai are Solomon Ykuno, Solomon Haile, Solomon Byre, Abreham Gebremedhin , TirHas Tareqe and many others.

  3. I love ማይ ጃሕጃሕ! Thanks Madote!

  4. Catching up? you mean Eritreanizing their shit ? LOL

  5. Head Line:
    Asmara, the culture capital of tigrinya language.

  6. Actually, you're being dishonest.

    It's an open secret that all of Tigray region predominantly listens to Eritrean music, watch Eritrean film, Eritrean TV, read Eritrean books and are even schooled in Eritrean Tigrinya dialect, which is linguistically classified as the "Asmara Dialect".

    If anything, this claim is not exaggerated, and rarely is it reported on because to do so would shed light that Ethiopia is a major pirater of Eritrean intellectual property. Not a single cent is going to these Eritrean artists who are creating this content that is being bootlegged and sold for profit in Ethiopia.

    The following is a report from 2011 by a South African Journalist who noticed Tigray was 'engulfed' in Eritrean music and culture.

    "Even Mekelle dances only to the Eritrean tune. Traditional restaurants blare Eritrean music, notice boards and cinema houses announce the schedule for Eritrean movies and glossy posters of Eritrean music stars decorate coffee houses.

    This situation astounds Tsegaye G/Tensay (39), an Ethiopian who was born in the Eritrean capital of Asmara, where he lived half of his life.

    “Music is my passion and my profession,” says the composer. After the intense war between the border nations, however, he was not able to enjoy Ethiopian songs in Eritrea.

    But when Tensay returned to the Ethiopian town of Mekelle, through the assistance of the Red Cross, he found an Ethiopian city engulfed in Eritrean music. Mekelle, in fact, has three government-controlled FM stations that all enjoy playing Eritrean music, which is obviously not in the government’s interest. The fact is, listeners prefer the music of their “enemies” to their own.

    “Even at their weddings the grooms urged me to play Eritrean,” says Amanuel, a popular disk jockey who works in one of the prominent nightclubs, Abyssinia. Almost 90% of the songs he plays are Eritrean though, he says “nowadays I try to mix some songs of our own along with Eritrean”.

    His own small DVD kiosk rents everything from Bollywood to Hollywood, but local residents prefer Eritrean films. So adverts posted throughout the city shout “New Eritrean movies: coming soon!”

    Every Saturday and Sunday youths flood the city’s recreation centres and TV houses—a cinema hall where people hunker down and watch international soccer and popular local TV shows on a big screen—which are addicted to Eritrean dramas.

    Only the English Premier League draws bigger crowds. And these sites can tap into the Eritrean channel from Arab satellites and present it to large audiences in Mekelle, with no competition from Ethiopian TV."

    GOD BLESS ASMARA!!!!!!!!

  8. Not only Tigrigna, I was surprised to know that most of Tilahun Gessese songs where composed by two Eritreans artists.

  9. Thanks for the praise bro!

  10. We want a huge castle of Ras Alula Aba Nega, the founder of Asmara, at the heartland of Asmara!! Guys, do not forget that there are by far more indeginuos Tigrigna speakers in Ethiopia than in Eritrea( 6 million vs 2 million). So, Asmara can not be the capital of Tigrigna language.

  11. Agree with you zareba, nice article Makhate

  12. You want a huge castle of ras Alula Aba Nega??
    From which planet are you from?

    We want to efface him from our memories, for us he is known to be the master bamboozle, the man who failed to fulfill his oath given in the name of God and St. Mary by which the Eritrean warrior/hero Ras Weldemichael was lured to trust, a misplaced trust that cost him his life.

    Aye nai Agame neger?!

  14. Ahhh “For fear of seeming Uncle Tom-ish” this really annoyed me that I had to stop at this point to comment, you should be “Uncle Tom-ish”, ‘Uncle Tom’ is the hero of the book, just because 99% of the world population who have not read the book might have the view that ‘Uncle Tom’ was the house nigger but he is the hero, the one who helped and protected people… the people you are not mean to be like is ‘Sambo’ or ‘Quimbo’… you should be proud to be “Uncle Tom-ish”,

  15. What a senseless statement to make, population has no bearing on what the article is saying

  16. You ignorant moron!! Asmera is older than ay other region!! ... even if we are going to look at your own history books the Supposedly founder of the empire Menelik the 1st is Wedi Asmera – he’s Eritrean - born by Mai-Bela so please

  17. I am tigrawayi and ya I love watching Eritreans movies, even though the taste of the movies is losing taste these days, and my all time favorite singer is Elsa kidane. One of the reasons I vehemently support Eritreans indpendence is because I see Eritrea as a becon of my Tigrinya language and culture and independence will defenately help in preserving this fact. However, the article is a little of an egzageration. The idea that Eritrean songs and movies are more popular than their tigray counter parts is absurd. It is usually northern tigreans like me who have a taste of Eritrean songs not mekele.

  18. Asmara is indeed the oldest part of the Horn of Africa. It is where settled civilization was first established around 2,800 years ago.

    But let's never look into their history books of fiction. Menelik the 1st, as you know, was a fictional character. As was his alleged parents, Queen of Sheba and King Solomon. The Ethiopians use this fiction to continue their expansionist policies that are directed at Eritrea.

  19. Kkkk there is no single tigrawayi who has ever copied Eritrean songs. Just because some amharu singers sometimes imitate Eritrean songs does not mean they are tegaru. We have a totally different accent and different taste of music.

  20. Thank you for being a decent Tigrayan. Eritreans have no issues with that. And its true, Eritrean cinema/music needs to continue modernize itself, or else it will decay into obscurity.

    The only disagreement I have with you is to your claim that it's only Northern Tigrayans that listen to Eritrean songs and watch Eritrean movies over their own.

    You may have missed it but Madote posted a link showing that's not true at all. The people of Mekele mostly listen to Eritrean songs, and watch Eritrean films.

    Here's the link to the report:

    "Even Mekelle dances only to the Eritrean tune. Traditional restaurants blare Eritrean music, notice boards and cinema houses announce the schedule for Eritrean movies and glossy posters of Eritrean music stars decorate coffee houses.

    This situation astounds Tsegaye G/Tensay (39), an Ethiopian who was born in the Eritrean capital of Asmara, where he lived half of his life.

  21. Adhanom, Have you forgot that todays Mekele shakers and makers ( the rulers and night club owners) are from northern Tigray.

  22. History 101: Amharic belongs to the Axumite kingdom and it was a military code language used by the Axumites. Hence, Amharic belongs to Tigraians and it is not a foreign language for them as you think.

  23. Why do you guys want to be part of our history when we dislike you to death ?

  24. Haha I didn't mean it in the sense of being kind and caring, I meant in the sense of being over gracious to those who subjugate you

  25. Bro, Try to see how many words you can make out u say. None all i hear is lelelelelelelelelele....hahahaha

  26. Alec,
    The video shows how much rich and varied the Tigrigna language is and your comment shows how poor your Tigrigna language knowledge is(you said that you can not make out any word). Tigrigna is not a boring monotonous, homogeneous language as you might think. It is very rich and with different dialects. Agree?

  27. Amharic does not belong to the Aksumite Empire. Amharic was developed between 11th-13th centuries, which was centuries after the fall of the Aksumite empire. Same thing can be said about Tigrinya. The language of the Aksumite Empire was Ge'ez, especially after the conversation to Christianity in the 4th Century A.D. Before that, the language could have been Proto-Ge'ez or other extinct languages. Greek and Sabaean languages were also found in many inscriptions throughout Eritrea, but I think these languages were for external communications, rather than the local indigenous languages.

  28. I did not say that Amharic was an Axumite lingua franca( offcial language). Amharic was used by Axumite soldiers based around the area AMARA SAYINT. This was much before the 11th-13th century. After the 13th cenury, Amharic itself became an offcial language of the then Empire because it was very famous and like by the majority of the subjects and the nobles.

  29. Amharic was developed centuries after the Aksumite Empire. To claim Amharic was used by Aksumite soldiers is preposterous, as the language wasn't even born yet.

  30. I actually have great respect for raya and wajerati people who have maintained their Tigrinya after all the centuries of subjugation by Amharas. They weren't even regardeded as tigrians until the coming to power of tplf. Instead of talking shit, learn to understand the history of the area...

  31. ...further to Dahlak's point .. Amharic could not have been used or understood by the Axumite as it was developed as code to communicate with each other without the kings of that time(who at this point spoke Tigrinya) understanding them, in short it all come about as what later become to be known as the Amharic people hated the Tigrayns and did not wanted to pay tax to their kings and lastly Amharic is the youngest Geez based languages and it was not until recently 200-300 years ago that it become official - you need to learn your history stupid

  32. Buhahahahahahahaha, Agame are daydreaming again pls someone wake the up.

  33. Amhara they worked so hard to destroy Eritrea history.So when your enemy try to destroy you they try to make u ROOT-LESS so they can claim UR HISTORY as their own like the white people or the Arabs did to the Ancient Egypt. it's b/c of colonialism and wars that our history took long century to be heard. so now Eritrea is independent country and now it's been heard and that anger's them very much.

  34. ...but that what i'm also saying, Uncle Tom was not over gracious to those who subjugated him, there is a misunderstanding with people with the book and the story of Uncle Tom's cabin - as the hero of the story is Uncle Tom and those who were over gracious to those who subjugated them or in other words house niggers where ‘Sambo’ or ‘Quimbo’ and not Uncle Tom. however i understand in modern language and especially since 1900's when some one says Uncle Tom they automatically think or have an image of a house nigger. what i'm saying though is that, Uncle Tom is not a house nigger.

  35. you can't deceive nobody cuz we Eritreans know your kind. its been said Agame boy, Let no one deceive you with empty words and yours is just bla bla and f*cking bla.

    A liar makes up things to help himself, like u are doing now.

  36. Poor loony Weyane, your pathological impulses to lie, beg and distort are beyond any method of treatment.

    Let's see if my history knowledge is zero.
    Your Emperor Youhannes IV did not die a natural death, he was DECAPITATED, which is horrible way to die.
    Who decapitated him? I don't know and I don't care, what I know is that he got what he deserved i.e. the wrath of God.
    Decapitated far from his land and people, with his head hung up on a spear taken to be exposed as a trophy as if he was a zinc cup, the type of cups given to 2nd division football team winner.

    The sad part is that his descendants (you) Weyane, instead of collecting his head from Umdurman to give him an honorable burial, unashamedly went to Italy to beg them to return an Axum's obelisk which was erected in Rome.

    Do you like Sudanese music?

  37. Like always, Awesome poem bro.

    God bless Eritrea/Asmera.

  41. well according to the link you directed us.... " The principal subdivisions of Teegray are Hamasien, serowee, Kalagoze, agama, teegray proper, shire, temben,Inderta, Wogerate, and siloa" so infact the Teegrayans u described here are you ancestors too. The brave people who are "governed by men who are inferior to them in every quality". you are tegraway. even if you dont speak it,that blood of our brave ancestors that still revolves around you will speak by it self.

  42. I never questioned eritrean independence. in fact an independent eritrea in necessary to preserve our beautiful tigrina language and culture. However, independence does not mean you have to discard all your past history except the history of shabia. the heroic history of eritreans does not just start with shabia. They have been among the principal fighters who have beaten the egyptians and italians in a number of battles. Just because the leader happened to be from tembian does not mean you have to discard all the sacrifices made by your people.

  43. Shebab umdurman is my fave! May be for the same reason; is this you bro? CA?

  44. Bado TshAte, shih gze hyaway aytEmen tigraway is a lesson of wisdom from our forefathers, never forget!
    Amharu called them a thorn in the mud and the Sudanese simply decapitated their johnny-come-late( the 4th).

  52. yes you are right, but first we have to recover all what is ours historicaly, like akeloguzay, aseb, tesene and then asmara, why not, that way in a slow and agonising procces we will recover our lost brothers and sisters, who are carruntly enjoying a new invented identity.:">relax max..........

  53. Alec mulatto,
    Let's go. Our today's lesson is the ff:
    1, ለለ is not a Raya dialect. It is an Enderta area dialect. The Rayas do not use the conjunction ለለ. Instead, they use the conjunction ደማይ. Way to go Alec mulatto
    2, CAUTION: No one, specially somebody from ዓዲዃላ, is allowed to insult the proud land of Agame, the land of መኳንንቲ፣መሳፍንቲ. That also offends the Akeleguzays. Alec, the fact that you are from Seraye does not give you any right to insult the proud people of Agame. Not long time ago was your homeland one of the protectorates of the Agame lords.

  58. Sorry i don't speak Adgie.

  59. hey alec boy.
    i will make you speak it soon, first we have to take care of your weyane brothers,
    which history are you talking about, have you had any history other than that of i am a victim of rape by italian, turky, and egypt, to your surprise it was the ethiopian heroes who get rid of those intruders, your share of that history at that time was shameful and unacceptable because you was licking all the intruders turn by turn while brave ethiopians like ras alula defending the pride of the abesha people, so do not brag.

  60. is this a poem or a shoping list???? starts with sssssssss ends with sssssss, whats happening??? are you guys loosing your origin and replacing it with the italianess or arabness, come on you guys are abesha, what happen what we thought your anccesters in our monastries, qine, dogua, tsome duga, nibab, oh what a waste of human resource. next time try something like this....

  65. well done, this type of peom is called yalteweqere, it means unrefined thought, it is obvious that you want to send your message but your message bounce as its content is, hate and belittling others,any way try the late lauret tsegaye gebremedhn, you can find his poetry in you tube or tagel seifu.

    its ok now you can dump your crap in the dump in your quarter, because there are no many to understand your low scale b.s. honestly i am loughing that people in this forum are cheering you up for your shoping list, aye ye tigre neger bado bebado gura bicha nachuh.

    Why do you want to denay everything?
    But I personally promote people to use their thinking capacity and find out the truth. Read and find out the truth.
    So kirkir ... is/was Yohannes *Metmek* of MY Bible your KING? an everlasting King for that matter?

    Why should be Yewhannes the baptist be your king everlasting? Who gave him that right? ... Is wedi Afom his relative?

    It is funny how you want to silence the truth... we wa we woooo Bwaha ha ha ha . Do you think people will buy such kinds of arrogance?
