NOUVEL AN ETHIOPIEN (ENKUTATASH)
Petit Futé's opinion on NOUVEL AN ETHIOPIEN (ENKUTATASH)
Ethiopia follows the Julian calendar and celebrates its New Year on September 11. The festival called "Enkutatash" also marks the end of the rainy season and the commemoration of Saint-Jean Baptiste. Many dance and traditional music shows are organized throughout the country. Girls play a small percussion and move from home to home. They sing in particular "Abebayehugn" which means "I saw the flowers" when at the end of the rainy season the land is covered.
