The lovely painted faces of the Marakwet tribes in the Rift Valley

Kalenjin woman

This is one of the beautiful singers from the Sagat Traditional Dancers; we recorded them on March 7, 2012 during our trip through the Rift Valley, Kenya.    Her white dots represent the soil and the harvest; their beads are traditionally given to them after female circumcision.    These dancers had walked over 50 kms the night before to make sure they arrived in time for the recording.
