Somali camels

For Somalis, and other inhabitants of harsh, arid lands, the camel is a lifeline. These precious beasts carry their possessions, provide them with nourishing milk and meat, and survive the cruellest of droughts. Much Somali poetry and song centres around the camel. Somalis calculate bridewealth and blood feud compensation in heads of camel, and make millions exporting them to the Gulf. I was lucky enough to visit a camel market in Hargeisa, Somaliland where I came across herders engaged in a camel singing competition. You will also hear camel grunts, camel groans and the special sound camels make when they are in love. My friend Said Yusuf Abdi showed me around.

Here is a link to the BBC radio report about it:  The Somali camel market
