The Osiligi Maasai Warriors, from Oleopolos and its surrounding communities in southern Kenya, performed to an audience at St Nicholas’ Church in Dereham.

This was the Warriors’ second performance of the day having earlier entertained visitors to Ely Cathedral.

The group’s authentic tribal song and dance entertained both captivated crowds.

St Nicholas’ Church spokesperson, Evelyn Speed, said: “The fantastic, colourful performance was full of tribal dance and singing, telling stories of their culture and history.

“This was a most informative, enjoyable and memorable occasion,” she added.

Encouraged by the Kenyan visitors, Canon Sally Theakston joined other members of the audience on the stage to try some of the moves for themselves during what was a thoroughly entertaining performance.

The Osiligi Maasai Warriors work closely with UK charity, Osiligi Charity Projects, to support infrastructural improvements in their local community.
