Excitement is building in Stamford, following the arrival of the Osiligi Maasai Warriors who will be performing tribal song and dance, plus the world famous Maasai jumping at All Saints’ Church.

The seven-piece group, from the village of Oleopolos and surrounding communities in southern Kenya, will perform in Stamford on Saturday, October 24, as part of their annual tour of the UK.

The group will perform authentic and exciting Maasai tribal song and dance plus the world-famous Maasai jumping.

Since 2010, the group has worked in close association with a small UK charity - Osiligi Charity Projects - to support infrastructural improvements in their local community. The charity is separate from the tour but has earned both directly and indirectly from it.

So far the Osiligi Charity has built and equipped a school and medical centre, as well as providing clean water for the village. This year they are raising funds to build an orphanage.

“The tour is for our families, the charity for our community,” said Tajeu Minisa, leader of The Osiligi Maasai Warriors.

The performance at All Saints’ Church in Stamford will begin at 7pm. Tickets will be £8 or £5 concessions. All of the takings on the night will go directly to the charity.
