Using Soundcloud was one of the best ways to report from the field in Africa last year. One of our favorite sound captures of last year was in Tanzania after spending time with the Maasai in the arid northern part of the country. Hosted by Oikos, an Italian NGO that works with the Maasai to help them preserve the little environmental integrity that is left, we were treated to a traditional dance performed by Maasai men after a dinner of roasted goat and other traditional fare.
Play the sounds of the Maasai below.
