  Profile and Book Review - BANAADIR: The Country of Harbors - culture - Yemen Times
The Banaadirs (also spelled “Benadir”) are people with their roots in ancient Arabia, Persia and South and Central Asia.
In the tenth century along the Banaadir coast shoe factories and textile plants were established and the entire production of clothes was exported to Arab countries, Persia, India, China and other centres along the East African coast.
Banaadir and the regions between the two rivers of Somalia are of great strategic and economic value to the major tribes of Somalia, who are contending for access not only to land, resources and port facilities but also to manpower.

 The culture of people of Banaadir (part 2) - Yemen Times
Banaadir music is not written, and its composers and musicians are not literate in the Western sense.
By mixing the performance with music and plays, banaadir appeals to a greater variety of people, as well as, the famous “Kabebey” dance with its energising movements which brought so many awards and prestige to Somalia in the past inter-African or international tours and stage performances.
There are also a few sweets in Banaadir culinary culture; for example “Xalwo”, which is made of sugar, corn flour and ghee, and is used mainly in ceremonies such as weddings and religious festivals, is very popular.
