Description: 

Embrukoi dance song for men and women. The Embrukoi dance is characterised by highleaps into the air with a rigid body. The dancers will leap as much as 18 inches clear into the air, at the same time giving a characteristic lift to the chin. The song praises his friends who kill lions. He sings also that he himself found a lion beside the path and killed it with his spear, a not uncommon feat among these people. He also sings of a faction fight in his district between neighbouring villages. This is a well known song in the Arusha District. The use of a thin falsetto by the solo singer quite belies the look of the man, which is far from being effeminate and typical of the younf Masai moran.
