I’ve long been interested in music and cultures of Africa so I was glad when I heard there was entertainment at the lodge we were staying at.
A group of musicians started and were soon joined by the dancers - traditional performance from the Makonde people.
They performed a few songs and dances for us.
One of the songs included a jumping contest. This guy did pretty good.
Then they wanted us to join in - jumping isn’t my forte unfortunately.
I learned that the Masai don’t really use any musical instruments such as drums or rattles like many other African tribes do likely because they spend most of their time walking and travelling with their herds and the singing voice is the easiest thing to carry.
