Profile description of Djlopz maralal:

Preserving the sounds of the Samburu

An old Kenyan proverb proclaims that “music speaks louder than words”. Anyone that has visited Kenya, and been fortunate enough to hear the sounds and songs of the Samburu will remember their power to conjure vivid images. For centuries these spine-tingling chants, hypnotic clapping and soulful singing have been instrumental in recording Samburu history. With no written language; songs, dance and storytelling form a core part of life and songs are dedicated to their God, their cattle, the bravery of warriors and tribal warfare.
