Adumu Dance, Maasai

The Maasai community in Kenya celebrates several unique traditional ceremonies, one of which is the Eunoto. The ceremony is performed by members of the same age group 10 years after they are initiated in to adulthood. The ceremony is marked by a unique Maasai traditional dance called “Adumu.”

In this dance, young Maasai men form a circle, which each of them enters at a time to jump to the rhythm of the song. The higher and more elegant the dancer jumps, the more appealing he is to the young women looking on. This dance does not involve any kind of musical instrument.
