The Osiligi Maasai Warriors are coming to Tabor. The six performers come from the village of Oleopolos and the surrounding communities in southern Kenya, around thirty miles south of Nairobi.
They perform authentic and exciting Maasai tribal song and dance plus the world-famous Maasai jumping. The shows have been received with great acclaim in schools, churches and theatres from the south coast of England to the Isle of Skye in the north west of Scotland, and abroad.
Their performance is excellent family entertainment. In addition to the song, dance and jumping there will be short dramas and a Q&A session which explains some of the Maasai culture. There is also a short Powerpoint on the lives of the Maasai and a DVD which shows the results of the charitable work which these tours have enabled. The performance lasts around one and three quarter hours including an interval. Maasai beadwork will be available for sale.
Since 2010, the group has worked in close association with a small UK charity – Osiligi Charity Projects – to support local infrastructural improvements. this has led to the transformation of their community with new water stations, a new orphanage, a new church/community centre and – most impressively – a new, state-of-the-art primary school with 200+ sponsored pupils and a medical centre. The results have been spectacular. The charity is separate from the tour but has earned both directly and indirectly from it.
“The tour is for our families, the charity for our community.” says Tajeu Minisa, leader, The Osiligi Maasai Warriors.
