An encounter with traditional music in Rwanda
Discover Rwanda that is beyond Mountain Gorilla tracking in Rwanda Volcanoes National Park and Uganda gorilla safaris. It is the Rwanda of the ancient Intore Dance and Music that you will enjoy while on your Rwanda safari tour.
Traditional music and dance are so important especially in Rwandan ceremonies, festivals, social gatherings and storytelling since the pre-colonial era, as they are today.
Rwanda Dance is inseparable from music and is one of the most remarkable expressions of the Rwandan culture as the Rwandan dancers are always dance collectively.
Traditional Rwandan music continues to evolve and is increasingly influenced by western music. Another Important and interesting thing to note too is that all Rwandans share the same musical heritage just as they share a common language, values and rituals. Unlike in most other parts of Africa, the traditional music outlined above is not associated with particular ethnic or regional groups, but truly representative of the nation as a whole.
Uganda also has lots and lots of music and traditional dances from different ethnic groups. So, on your way from gorilla trekking safari in Uganda, don’t ever miss to visit one of the very many ethnic groups in Uganda to get this great experience.
