The Ashenda Festival is a traditional Tigrinya festival celebrating the end of fasting, or “filseta” in Tigrinya. The festival is an event most yearned by girls. Young girls and women dress in fine skirts and ware made from the “Ashenda” tall grass. The grass skirts are worn around the waist. They would also pleat their hair and sing, dance and play instruments continuously for three days. The festival itself was said to be among one of the most gorgeous celebrations of life amongst mankind.
The Tigray people are an indigenous ethnic group who live in the Eritrea and northern Ethiopia. They are an Afro-Asiatic people who have lived in the eastern Africa since roughly 400 BCE. Though I had never seen one personally, Tigrinya women had to be the most beautiful creatures on earth from the photos and film I had seen. Since they are an Afro-Asiatic people, they have f black and thier cheeckbeatures of both sub-Saharan Africans as well as Arab features. Their complexion is a caramel/maple leaf brown with piercing brown eyes, dark chocolate touches around their eyes and mouth, almost as if an Arab and a Sub-Saharan African got together and procreated. TTheir hair is dense, coarse and thier cheekbones align highly on the face. Thier semetic traits give them a thin, small nose and sunken eyes along with thin, long jawbones. In other words, they're as stunning a sight as the first time you saw an exotic creature at a zoo, or a geyser gushing. I myself, will never forget the time I first witnessed "her" physicality.
