Mwomboko Dance, Kikuyu

Mwomboko dance is one of the most common traditional dances among the Agikuyu people, the largest ethnic group in Kenya. The dance is usually performed during historic events, such as Madaraka Day, which commemorates the day Kenya gained internal self-rule from the British colonizers.

Mwomboko is usually performed by the elderly members of the community to signify the importance of the event. It involves the stamping of feet and rhythmic movement of arms. Musical instruments used in this traditional dance include flutes and jingles.
