The Kalbelia Dance is set to rock the Uganda International Cultural Festival!

Kalbelia Dance is set to rock this weekend’s Uganda International Cultural Festival at Uganda Museum. The annual event will kick off on Friday 28th July till Sunday 30th July. Put on your dancing shoes on and come experience this wonderful cultural dance from India on Sunday 30th at Uganda Museum as the dance will close the Cultural Fest.

The Kalbelia or Kalbeliya or Karberia, as it is sometimes spelled is a dance form that is associated with a Rajasthani tribe of the same name. The dance form consists of swirling, graceful movements that make this dance a treat to behold. The movements associated with the Kalbelia also make it one of the most sensuous forms of folk dance in India.

The Kalbelia dance is generally performed for any joyous celebration and is considered to be an integral part of the Kalbelia culture. Another unique aspect of the Kalbelia dance is that it is only performed by women while the men play the instruments and provide the music.

As previously mentioned, the Kalbelia dance is closely associated with the Kalbelia tribe of Rajasthan. The Kalbelia tribe follows Hindusim and are a nomadic tribe and are considered to be a fringe group in society. They prefer to live in paces just outside of villages and cities in makeshift camps called Deras. One of the most well known aspects of the Kalbelia tribe is their expertise as snake charmers and snake catchers.

This connection to snakes can be seen in the Kalbelia dance as the costume, as well as the dance movements, resemble the movements made by serpents.

Culture provides societies with a unique Identity, creativity, critical thinking, empathy, risk tolerance and above all mutual respect.

Culture preserves and provides knowledge which is essential for the physical and intellectual existence of man.

It preserves knowledge and helps it’s transmission from generation to generation.

It’s what directs and confines the behavior of an individual, in many cases; it has provided the much needed employment amidst biting unemployment and poverty!!

Whereas culture plays a big role in society, we are facing its erosion because our children are frequently exposed to foreign cultures through internet and televisions!

In view of the significance of culture and it’d erosion among the youth and children, Uganda International Cultural Fair, has put a special emphasis on youth and school children by putting a Schools Cultural awareness quiz competitions as one of the major activities of this year’s Cultural Festival that will be at Uganda Museum from 28th to 30th July 2017!

Parents bring all the children to Uganda Museum, there’s a lot foe them: from traditional kids games, exhibition of totems, cultural performances from Uganda’s unique indigenous groups, bouncing castles, acrobatics, Story Telling and more. Empowering the youth today for a better tomorrow!!

Know more about Totems at Uganda International Cultural Tourism Fair

With just less than two weeks to the annual Uganda International Cultural Tourism Cultural Fair, we have landed onto Totems of Uganda (Buganda Edition).

Totems of Uganda-Buganda edition is a book about the significant role totems play in the conservation of nature.

It depicts all totemic species in full colour and captures the stories of how they came into existence.

This is the only book which reveals traditional methods people in Uganda use to conserve nature.

The desire for man to connect to the wild animal kingdom is an ancient obsession but no one i have read or heard knows how this primordial global practice started. But as human communities developed, there was need for identity starting with kingdoms and later on individuals.

In Uganda, the first written leader to decree that all his subjects must acquire totems is Kato Kintu aka Kundu. He noticed that totemic groups were hunting selectively so he made it compulsory for all his new subjects who did not have totems to adopt at least two per person to fight the indiscriminate hunting that was growing rampant particularly during the 12th  century exodus.!

Come to Uganda Museum from 28th to 30th July 2017 look out for the meaning of your name and your totem in the book of Totems!

Get a full colour framed photo of your totem at an affordable price!

Our culture is our identity!!!
