Lunchtime Performance – The Osiligi Maasai Warriors

October 7 @ 1:10 pm - 2:00 pm

After a four year absence, the Osiligi Maasai Warrior Troupe return to perform at Ely Cathedral.

Since their last visit to Ely, the Troupe have continued annual UK tours, in over 20 UK counties, including visits to major Cathedrals, Theatres, Churches, and Schools, leaving audiences blown away by their exhilarating and enthusiastic performances. Indeed one reviewer described their efforts as “stunning” and “exciting in the extreme”

The effects of the tours, and the charity that stemmed from them, on the families in the Troupe’s community, some 30 miles South of Nairobi have been amazing. In 2002 they were destitute, with no facilities. Now they have fresh water, a new church/community centre, a beautiful new junior school, probably one of the best in Kenya with 260 pupils, each of whom have individual UK sponsors, a new clinic and, most recently, a new orphanage. Osiligi means hope in the Maasai language and over the years of this exercise, that is exactly what the Troupe’s community have been given. They now look forward to the necessary construction of a senior school.

Entry Free with a retiring collection.
