The well-known historian Conti-Rossini called Ethiopia as "a country of mosaic of cultures." For the basic reason that 83 languages and 200 dialects are widely spoken and you find these people living in harmony with diversity – all having their own costumes, religions, rituals, festivals, hair styles, songs, dances and arts - all unique in their own way.
Ethiopia has a number of festivals, many of them unique. Ethiopian festivals are colorful, fascinating and are all year round. Both traditional and religious festivals are celebrated by its diverse ethnic groups with their picturesque native lives in their most rustic settings.
