The bold, pointed pattern on the dancer basket conjures the full, sharp movements and brilliant costumes of East African dancers spinning to a drummer's beat. Both Rwanda and Uganda have rich traditions of celebrations that involve music and dance. But traditional East African dances go beyond entertainment; they often celebrate first fruits, and unmarried Rwandan youth dance the ikinimba as part of a courtship ritual; the dance's flowing arm movements show off the womens' beautiful grace. Similarly, in Uganda, young women dance the lakaraka. "It has often been said that everyone dances in Africa, and that Africa is the festival continent. Infact, an African proverb says that if you can talk, you can sing. And if you can walk, you can dance." - Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda
