Folklore

Folklore involves storytelling and the recital of chants and poetry and the Somalis and Afar who were nomadic for centuries use it in their villages to document and preserve their history and culture. 

Today, folklore is not common in modern Djibouti homes, however, some families still chant during funerals and weddings, according to the report by Culture Trip.

Jenile is an Afar dance that is inherently tied to the Cushitic religion and practiced today by a sect of Islam called the Sufi people during their ceremonies, the report adds.
