Afoola Oromoo - The largest collection of Oromo Folklores

About Us

The people of oromo have many beautiful folklore which has been passed down orally from generation to generation and reflects the traditions and morals of the people.

Folklores are traditional stories, music, art, and customs that have been passed from generation to generation. They are an important part of a culture’s identity and provide insight into its beliefs and values. Folklores often revolve around supernatural events and can be used to explain natural phenomena. They often contain a moral or teach a lesson, and reflect the history and culture of a region. Folklores are typically transmitted orally and are passed down from one generation to the next, but can be written down or even performed in plays and musicals.

We are going to pass on this beautiful culture to the next generation by providing you with educational and entertaining folklore such as old stories (durdurii), riddles, proverbs, sayings, proverbs, sookoo and soorgoo, geerarsa, children's games and things that reflect the culture of the Oromo people. We wish you a good read and enjoyment.


Help us in collecting, organizing and presenting the folklores of this great community.
