Samburu dance


 The Samburu people reside in the Rift Valley province of Northern Kenya. Traditional dress consists of red cloth that is wrapped around the body , tied with a white sash  with colorful beaded necklaces, earrings & bracelets.

Traditionally men are responsible for the safety of the tribe and look after the cattle, which are fundamental to the tribe’s semi nomadic way of life. The traditional role for the women is to take care of the household by looking after the children, collecting water and gathering roots and vegetables.

Two groups are formed, one of the Samburu men who gather in a circle and jump considerable heights from standing position; and the other group of Samburu women, although apart, their movements are in perfect synchronization.
