The Mugads of Harar were semi-permanent groups formed of both boys and girls of the same age (older than 15 or 16) and from the same neighbourhood. This interesting institution, peculiar to Harar, disappeared some twenty years ago and therefore, the following article is based either on the stories of old Adari people, who in their youth used to take part in Mugad activities or on the still existing traditions, such as songs.
