On May 2nd, 2017, the reception of 56th Annual Session of the Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization was held in Nairobi. Ambassador Liu Xianfa of the People’s Republic of China to the Republic of Kenya, Prof. Githu Muigai, President of 56th Annual Session of the Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization and Attorney General of the Republic of Kenya, Prof. Kennedy Gastorn, Secretary General of Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization, Ambassador Chika, Director of Directorate of Asia and Australasia of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kenya and Ambassador Xu Hong, Director of the Department of Treaty and Law of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China joined the reception. The Chinese Choir and Kung fu Club from Confucius Institute at the University of Nairobi were invited to perform.

First, the Chinese choir sang a local song to the guests named Jambo. Singing in both Chinese and Swahili shows the close and friendly relationship between China and Kenya. Then, the Kung fu club performed Tai Chi for the guests. The movements look like floating clouds and flowing water, and won applause. Then, Dai Qian, student from Confucius Institute at the University of Nairobi performed a traditional Chinese dance to the guests. In long sleeve waving, a lingering, deep and erratic emotion naturally outflowed, which pushed the atmosphere to a new high. The guests all took pictures to record this moment. At the end, the Chinese choir went to the stage again. They sang <<Half a Moon Climbs Up>>, <<Alamukhan>> and <<Malaika>> and took a group picture with the disgusted guests.
