Betty Masenqo was born in Ethiopia and grew up in Northern California. She first started playing classical violin in her public school orchestra and in her Ethiopian church community, where people recognized her as the masenqo player (due to the similarity between the Ethiopian masenqo and western violin). Her music is inspired by what she listened to in her childhood and adolescence, which includes Ethiopian music, indie folk music, and classical music. Her songs reflect on her search for meaning and purpose as she navigates adulthood as an Ethiopian American and she hopes they provide comfort and an opportunity for reflection for all who listen.
