Luo Academy: “This traditional Acholi dance is called ‘Dingi dingi’. It is performed when a girl has introduced her boyfriend to her parents. They have to approve the relationship and give the go-ahead for marriage.”

Luo Academy is a northern Ugandan group consisting of four dancers, two ‘orak’ (calabash) players, two drummers and two members on ‘olwet’ (flute). These plastic flutes are the modern version of the bamboo flute.
