From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Buhe is a ceremony of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, held on August 19 (Gregorian Calendar). On this date, the church celebrates the transfiguration of Jesus Christ on Mount Tabor in the presence of the three lead apostles. People of the neighborhood tie a bundle of sticks together to make a chibo, and set it on fire while singing songs. The main song is called "Hoya Hoye" with one singer singing while the others follow in a rhythmic way. It involves young boys singing songs of praise outside of people's homes.Usually once the boys finish singing, the owners of the home will give them a bread called mulmul.
