Introduction

Welcome to Ethiopia! Ethiopia has a rich tradition of both secular and religious music, singing and dancing, and these together constitute an important part of Ethiopian cultural life. Singing accompanies many agricultural activities, as well as religious festivals and ceremonies surrounding life's milestones - birth, marriage, and death.The various tribes and ethnic groups of Ethiopia have their own distinct music culture and tradition. The Tigrayans to the north have a smooth, circular dance routine culminated with shoulder and neck movement. The Amharas of central Ethiopia have a dance style dominated by upper body and neck movement. The Oromos, of central and south Ethiopia have a jumping style and full body dance routine. The Gurages have an acrobatic dance that requires high level of arm, leg and body coordination. As you can see the customs and traditions vary among the different regions of Ethiopia. One thing remains constant -the love of music. Join us into the exploration of a culture that has permeated, indeed transformed, through space and time! -Claudia Nieblas
