People and Traditional lifestyle, Travel and Tourism, Government, Economy, Education. Somalia Art and Culture, tourism information, people and tradition. This book will guide you through Somalia. Somalia is an Islamic country that lies at the horn of Africa bordering Indian Ocean to the East, Kenya to the West and Ethiopia and Red Sea to the North. The longest history of the country dates back to 5000 years ago in form of paintings, Laas Gall Complex. In antiquity, Somali and its people played an important part of international trade through the horn of Africa. Somalis have however been misunderstood mainly because they are extensively spread over the neighboring countries and the entire Horn of Africa. Here are all the facts about Somali People, Language and Culture. Despite the battering received by the general populace, traditional crafts have survived, proving themselves to be both hardy and resilient. Amongst the different clans, traditional music, folk songs, tribal dances, narrative poems passed down by word of mouth keep the old cultures alive. The arts and crafts were basically designed to be part of tribal rituals, ways and means of appeasing dead ancestors, gods and evil spirits. Female circumcision is widely practiced and despite growing opposition, young girls continue to be subjected to this barbaric ritual. Somalia is famous for its native crafts like gold and silver jewellery. Somalia History and Cultural Information and Travel Guide. Vacation package Book
