The most important parties are weddings. They can last one whole week and many
people take part in them. There are also other smaller familiar celebrations, like births and circumcisions.
Each tribe has its own folklore, music and customs for the celebration, in
special the customs of the women, who in addition paint the face and they put henna in the hands and the feet.
Another type of celebration is the Moussem, around the tomb of a dervish.
They take place once in the year, with occasion of the Aid El Kebir (commemoration of the Abraham’s sacrifice), of the Miloud
(anniversary of the birth of Mahomet) or at the end of the harvests.
In the Moussems act the members of a certain religious brotherhood. Usually
they are accompanied by a great market.
