Poll: Which Song Should Be Adopted as the Oromian National Anthem?
Recently, a number of songs are being used as de facto Oromian national anthems, most notably Ali Birra’s Aniis Biyyaan Qabaa, Nuhoo Gobena’s Alaaba Oromiyaa, Afandi Siyo’s Oromiyaa and Faxe Ania’s Oromiyaa.
After reading recent articles suggesting a common flag for Tokkummaa Qabsaa’ota Oromoo, a reader proposed that the same be done to adopt a common Oromian national anthem. The selected national anthem will, of course, be unofficial until the nation adopts its official anthem at the appropriate time. To that end, the following most commonly used songs are given as possible options – please select the one you’d like to see as the Oromian national anthem [listen below each of the selected songs for informed decision-making].
