Best wishes from Bishoftu’s native Galaanee Bulbulaa whose song is Irreecha icon

Posted: Fulbaana/September 29, 2017 · Finfinne Tribune | Gadaa.com | Comments

The following is Galaanee Bulbulaa’s best wishes for #Irreecha2017:

Baga Ayyaana irreechaattin isin gahe Barri kun bara bilisummaa hawwinee itti arganu nuf yaa ta’u!

Sung about 8 years ago, Galaanee Bulbulaa’s music “Irreechaa Irreeffanaa” has become an icon that signals the onset of the Irreecha holiday, which is celebrated at the end of September (or beginning of October) each year during the start of the Spring season in Oromia. The Oromo call this holiday in Spring Irreecha Malka or the Oromo Thanksgiving. It’s a celebration of the end of the rainy and gloomy Winter season in Oromia, and the coming of the bountiful and bright Spring season – and it’s celebrated near a water body, such as a lake or a river.

In the song, through her melodic voice, Galaanee Bulbulaa narrates the story of Irreecha and her pride in the Oromo culture. Galaanee was born around Bishoftu, the town that holds the biggest of the Irreecha Malka celebrations near the local lake named Hora/Lake Arsadi. This closeness to Bishoftu has given her the native’s advantage to vividly tell the story of Hora Arsadi’s Irreecha. Her energetic dance moves leaves one no room, but to join in the celebration of the Oromo culture and heritage. Enjoy Galaanee’s “Irreechaa Irreeffanaa” below.

Qeerroo vs. Foollee - The Need for 'Tokkummaa' through 'Ilaa fi Ilaamee'

This is strictly our observation (at the individual level - our opinion/Editorial). #GadaaFT

In the post #Irreecha2017 season, two groups of Oromo youth are emerging: the red-green-red (revolutionary) Qeerroo, and the black-red-white (evolutionary) Foollee. All used to be loosely referred to as 'Qeerroo;' it looks like this loose term doesn't define everyone anymore.

Earlier this week, we shared the following graphic calling on Tokkummaa between these two Oromo youth groups (see below in the comment-section). And, we also shared a video of the Gadaa culture of "Ilaa fi Ilaamee" in order to indicate the way to Tokkummaa (i.e. discussion for consensus/Tokkummaa). The video can be watched below in the comment-section.

Insults, bullying and other negative tendencies shouldn't be hurled at each other; it produces nothing, but resentments. We have the UNESCO-recognized Gadaa system to be used here: "Ilaa fi Ilaamee" (consensus-building through matured discussion).

There is no right or wrong way to the desired Bilisummaa, but there are different ways. Neither Qeerroo's nor Foollee's approach is right or wrong, but they're clearly different; we're starting to notice through posts on social media.

The fast-change-seekers (the revolutionary) Qeerroo are restless (by nature or choice); the slow-change-seekers (the evolutionary) Foollee are deliberate (by nature or choice). Each person should choose his or her liking and align in the group that suits his or her decisions, then discuss carefully and respectfully to understand each other (not tear each other up to cause distrust and resentments).

Points of conjunction (collaboration) are both groups' stance against the Woyane-inflicted human rights abuses in Oromia, and their love for Oromummaa and Oromia.
