I mean what's the difference between an Afar in Ethiopia, Djibouti, and Eritrea? Nothing but the one in Eritrea was wearing a shalwar khameez just as the the rest of the Eritreans. Even your pagan bantus were wearing shalwar khameez.

i love eritreans.......
voltage my understanding is that cultural diffusion happens often.
ertirea is on the coast and used to be the centre of trade, this is why i believe the indian influence and arab is normal,
and allot of it is also indeginous.
the beja and bani amer are the most arabized while the afar are not that arabized.
