WHAT ARE: LARAKARAKA ,DINGIDINGI,BWOLAAND APITTI?
Larakaraka:is a ceremonial dance from the Acholi tribe of NorthernUganda, 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........

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....
