The Ma'di Bowl Lyre music and dance is one of the oldest cultural practices of the Ma'di people of Uganda. The traditional songs and dances, performed for various occasions, including weddings and to celebrate harvests, are a tool for strengthening family ties and learning about community culture. Rituals are also involved. Transmitted by senior bearers, the future of the practice is at risk due to it being considered old-fashioned by younger generations and materials used coming from species now endangered.
