Celebrating Masai


The Massai are very ordinary people with a simple life styl...e, they have always reminded me that the simple and best things in life are free, and beyond all the hardship that Africa endures, they prove that you can find 'Happy' in any situation. They have they whitest smile, and the darkest complexion, characteristics so unique of people who reside along that part of the equator.


DanceDances teach social patterns and values, the most widely used musical instrument in Africa is the human voice. Some ethnic groups in Africa do not  use drums,  in villages throughout the continent, the sound and the rhythm of the drum expresses the mood of the people. The drum is a powerful sign of life,  it's beat symbolizes  the heartbeat of the community.
