The Kamba or Akamba people are a Bantu ethnic group - or tribe - who live in the semi-arid formerly Eastern Province of Kenya stretching east from Nairobi to Tsavo and north up to Embu, Kenya.This land is called Ukambani which constitutes of Makueni County, Kitui County and Machakos County.Several notable businessmen and women, politicians, as well as professional men and women are direct descendants of these itinerant pastoralists.In the latter part of the 19th century the Arabs took over the coastal trade from the Akamba, who then acted as middlemen between the Arab and Swahili traders and the tribes further upcountry.It is a healing rite designed to restore environmental balance through spiritual blessings, movement, offering, and prayers.According to Akamba, Kilumi has been present since the very beginning of Kamba existence.Among the Akamba people, lack of rain is considered an event requiring ritual intervention.As a result, they perform a ritual rain making dance called Kilumi.
The Kamba speak the Kamba language (also known as Kikamba) as a mother tongue.
It is believed that the Akamba bore a son 'Kikuyu' (boy named after the figtree) who married Mumbi (Creator) and together started the first Kikuyu family which is today the Kikuyu tribe.
According to Ethnologue, there are approximately 3,960,000 Kamba speakers, with the number increasing.
During the colonial era, British colonial officials considered the Kamba to be the premier martial race and sharp-shooters of Africa.
The Kamba themselves appeared to embrace this label by enlisting in the colonial army in large numbers.
