(Photograph) - Bringing the rhythms of the savannah to Wales, a group of Masai schoolchildren are touring Welsh primaries, demonstrating tribal dances.The Kenyan children, sponsored by the Celtic Cultural Exchange organisation, visited Dewi Sant primary, in Carmarthenshire, where they were greeted by pupils in traditional costume. After the dance demonstration, the two sets of pupils discussed the differences between their schools and cultures.

Elen Gravell, 10, said: "They had really flashy, colourful clothes. It would be interesting to try them on. But they're not clothes you see every day in Llanelli.". Photograph by KEN DICKINSON
