“Tradition is what makes people who they are", says Anuang’a Fernando, creator of Maasai Footsteps. "If you lose it, you lose your identity”. The project celebrates the ancestral songs and dance of the Maasai people of East Africa, performed at schools and on European stage through contemporary dance. While capturing and honouring the aesthetic and culture of the Maasai nomadic tribes Purko, Loodokilani and Kisonko, Anuang’a uses his passion for contemporary dance style - learned in Paris, France - to share his heritage and make it accessible to modern-day students.
