WHAT ARE: LARAKARAKA ,DINGIDINGI,BWOLA AND APITTI?

Larakaraka: is a ceremonial dance from the Acholi tribe of Northern Uganda,  It is  a courtship dance that is performed during weddings. When the young people in a particular village are ready for marriage, they organise a big ceremony where all potential partners meet. As a sign of friendship, food and alcoholic drinks are served during this ceremony. Only the best dancers will get partners, so there is a lot of competition during the dancing. In Acholi, if you are a poor dancer, you are likely to die as a bachelor . To view click here........

Dingidingi: is performed by the young girls of the Acholi, and their movements are meant to imitate birds. The girls dance to attract the young boys, so the dance is usually held on bright days, when the sun is out. To view click here....
