What a beautiful sound; the Enkakenya Centre for Excellence girls letting loose, being joyful, and making something out of nothing.
Drowning in my computer screen in the dull teachers office, I almost involuntarily followed the sounds of beats and exultant chants coming from the stairwell. There I found a legion of girls like Maasai Kakenya, above, banging out rhythms with sticks and hands and the jerrycans with which they fetch water from the river. They had converged while waiting their turn to bathe, and they had spontaneously erupted, as such is the power of these girls when you bring them together and then leave them alone. I wish you could hear it, but take it from me; these young ladies can build beats with the best of them.
