While meeting some Maasai warriors, the squad took part in the adumu, sometimes referred as “the jumping dance”.

Visitors to Kenya will be familiar with the dance where the warriors form a circle and one or two at a time they enter the center to begin jumping while maintaining a narrow posture, never letting their heels touch the ground. Members of the group may also raise the pitch of their voices based on the height of the jump.

This end-of-season trip is part of City’s sponsorship deal with Kenyan betting firm SportPesa.
