TRIBES IN DJIBOUTI AND THEIR FASHION

Djibouti is a country with many ethnic groups. The two major ethnic groups are the Dir (clan) Somali (60%) and the Afar (35%). The Issas make up the majority of the Somali clan component, followed by a large group of Gadabuursi and a smaller number of Isaaq. Both are sub-clans of the greater Dir, with the Issas belonging to the Madoobe Dir and the Gadabuursi to the Madaluug Dir. Arabs, Ethiopians, and Europeans make up the remaining 5% of the population of Djibouti (French and Italians). The majority of the locals are city dwellers, with the remaining being pastoralists.

Both Somali and Afar men dress alike. Both wear sarong, usually white or plaid. More traditional men wear whhite robes with the sarong, though today it vseems to be replaced with a long scarf.

 

The Somalis

Nomadic pastoral tribes, loose empires, sultanates, and city-states have long existed among Somalis. Clans are major social units in Somali culture, with membership playing a vital role. Clans are patrilineal and are frequently divided into sub-clans, with multiple sub-divisions in some cases. Somali society has a long history of ethnic endogamy. Marriage is frequently to another ethnic Somali from a different clan in order to strengthen alliance relations.

The Afars

Historically, Afar society has been divided into independent kingdoms, each ruled by its own Sultan. Pastoralists, who raise goats, sheep, and cattle in the desert, make up a small part of the society.

They are socially organized into clan families and two main classes: the asaimara (‘reds,’ who are the political dominating class, and the adoimara (‘whites,’ who live in the Mabla Mountains).

The Afar are also renowned for their martial prowess. The jile, a well-known curved knife, is usually worn by men. They also have a large collection of fight songs.

MUSIC IN DJIBOUTI

Somali songs are usually the result of collaboration between lyricists (midho), songwriters (laxan), and singers, and may be traced back to the late 1940s in Djibouti (codka or “voice”). Balwo is a popular Somali musical style in Djibouti that focuses on love themes. They perform song and dance from two of Djibouti’s main ethnic groups (Somali and Afar), appear on Djiboutian radio and television shows on a regular basis, and travel the world as representatives of Djiboutian culture. This festival attracts artists from all around the country, and live recordings of the festival’s headliners have proven to be a hit with international audiences. The Dinkara and Adarous are two of the most well-known performers. Several groups committed to the preservation of traditional culture and dance are funded by the government.

The tanbura, bowl lyre, and oud are all native Djiboutian instruments.
