Ekitaguriro is the main traditional style of dance in Western Uganda. It originates from the Banyankore people of western Uganda, who value their cattle highly (being their main source of income). This dance is in praise of the long-horned cattle found nowhere else but in Ankole. The dancers mimic foot sounds, rhythms, and movements of the elegant Ankole cattle. The main instruments used in this type of music are omukuri (flute) and engoma (drum).
