In Python3 str IS unicode. Old Python2 str is bytes.
So depending on what you want to do use either

array(b'aa')  : array of bytes
array('aa')   : array of unicode characters

But I think in most cases it is just better NOT to convert str or bytes to an array and test isinstance(...,str) or
isinstance(..., bytes).

commit 83a280 (11 Jul 2019) adds a check for unicode.
Indeed, asarray('aa','bb') is an array of dtype unicode objects

with python3 in fe_abq.py line 1374
  if e.dtype.kind != 'S':
should probably be replaced by
  if e.dtype.kind != 'U':
