Togbui-Agni of Adja Tado

Togbui-Agni is the harvest festival of Adja-tado from Moyen-Mono region population located in the South-east of Notsé. It is an occasion whereby several rituals are performed to exorcise sicknesses, to thank the spirits of ancestors and the feeding-yielding land for the good harvest of the year and also implore blessings upon the population. The name Tado emanates from 'Atawoade' meaning to bypass sicknesses. This festival is celebrated every second Saturday of August in Tado.
