The ceremonies and festivals held amongst the people
Somali names have three parts. The first name is the given name, and is specific to an individual. The second name is the name of the child's father, and the third name is the name of the child's paternal grandfather. Thus siblings, both male and female, will share the same second and third names. Women, when they marry, do not change their names. By keeping the name of their father and grandfather, they are, in effect, maintaining their affiliation with their clan of birth.
Women and children were responsible for harvesting. After a good harvest the Somalis prepared a feast where everyone attended. This ceremony was a sign of thanks giving for the good harvest. Music, dance and drama were all performed to mark this ceremony.
They had a style of music and dance known as dhaanto.
