WARRIORS from a tribe in Kenya are coming to Portsmouth to perform live music.

The Osiligi Troupe of Maasai Warriors will make their only appearance in the city this year at the Church of the Resurrection, Drayton.

The Maasai are one of the poorest tribes in Kenya – life is hard, infant mortality is high and drinking water is rarely clean or close-by.

Maasai people on average live to less than 50 years old, lower than the rest of Kenya.

They are now putting on a tour of the UK to raise awareness and funds for the relief of poverty of their families back in Kenya.

It is also a chance for the tribe to promote their charity, Osiligi Charity Projects which, brings fresh water to the tribe’s communities.

Organiser John Curtin said ‘The troupe’s music is incredible, mesmerising to hear and certainly fascinating to watch.

‘This is an opportunity to experience and enjoy the diverse culture of the Maasai.

‘This is not to be missed.’

The performance starts at 7.30pm on October 20. For more information, call (023) 9242 1849.
