What you'll do

You will be given a brief introduction about history of our folk dance then heading to the car park for getting in our private bus, as the group is not big I will provide information about important places which I know while we are traveling.
On our arrival at Kianga main road, You will get off from the bus and I will walk you in the farm which has got medicinal and spices , in the farms there are few houses, this means some children will greet you in our local language of "JAMBO" You will need to reply the same.
When we get to the scene , community's members will greet you with drumming and trumpet, I will invite you to dance with other dancers from the area, the songs will be in Swahili but beats are easy to follow. You dance when you get tired you sit down, there will be drinks and snacks for guests, you choose what you prefer and watch the dance, you are free to join again when you feel like rejoining. I will provide a brief speech on behalf of you (Thanks note). Its time to leave.
Other things to note
The fork dancing will take place in the farm house which is away from the main road, sometimes it rains, you need flat walking shoes

I organise and facilitate this therapeutic dance.
