|The Moipei Quartet|
And today I am introducing you to some heavenly Kenyan angels. The Moipei triplets Mary, Martha and Magdalene and their younger sister Seraphine form the all girl music group, Moipei Quartet. These talented Maasai girls have very beautiful voices (well trained by their father Nicholas ole Moipei who is also their teacher) and often perform 'a capella' or accompanied by piano only, mostly in classical styles. Some of their songs also bring us a message, like Mbiu ya Mgambo, which highlights the plight of girls in the Maasai community.
The Moipei Quartet's debut CD (+bonus DVD) is finally out! It's now available at Nakumatt, entitled 'The Moipei Quartet - In the Land of the Lion', and you may want to have a look at the preview below.
Also please put the Moipei family in your prayers as Seraphine Moipei, the youngest of the quartet singers, was admitted to hospital in January with a brain tumor. Fortunately, she's now out of hospital and getting better.
