Lake Turkana Cultural Festival -Kenya
May 5, 2014
Takes place for the 5th consecutive year in Loyangalani town, on the shores of the awe-inspiring Jade Sea. The 10 ethnic groups of Lake Turkana region El- Molo, Rendille, Samburu, Turkana, Dassanach, Ghabra, Borana, Konso, Wata and Burji- demonstrate through song and dance their unique differences and traditions. In this remote region, visitors are also made aware of the challenges faced by these minority tribes which include drought, poor infrastructure and wrangling amongst others. Thus whilst we awe at their impressive dress and study their way of life, the underlying goal remains the promotion of peace and the appreciation of these fascinating tribes. The event cost USD 600.
