#CONGONARRATIVES ▼△▼''Kifwebe Masks'' ▼△▼

BACKGROUND

During the 16th century, the Songye migrated from the Shaba area, which is now the southern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Their history is closely linked to the Luba's, to whom the Songye are related through common ancestors. Having waged war against one another for a long time, the Songye and Luba later formed an alliance to fight the Arabs. They settled on the left bank of the #LualabaRiver, on a savanna and forest-covered #plateau. Divided into many subgroups, the 150,000 #Songye people are governed by a central chief assisted by innumerable secret societies.

The Luba attribute the origins of the kifwebe society to three spirits, which emerged from a ditch near a lake. The female spirit was attracted by humans and went to live among them. The two male spirits stayed in the bush, but visited the village where they dazzled the inhabitants with their dancing to the point where the men begged to be initiated. The grooves marking the surface of kifwebe refer to the ditch from which the founding spirits emerged. The masks therefore are marked with signs of the portal to the other world. During the first two decades of the twentieth century, thekifwebe masking tradition spread throughout the #Luba and Songye regions of southwest DRC. They were worn in male/female pairs for royal ceremonies, on the night of the new moon when ancestors are honored, during initiation and funeral ceremonies, and when a person assumed an important political title. They also are perceived as having healing abilities. These masks were worn with a #raffia costume. Examples of the round kifwebe masks entered European collections by the second half of the nineteenth century. Female kifwebe masks differ by smaller crests or even by lack of them.

#CONGONARRATIVES Go where passion leads... | "In DR Congo, the UN stabilisation mission uses helicopters to bring electoral kits to remote areas the Electoral Commission can't get to [ due to lack of roafs/infrastructure] . Kimvula territory, at the heart of the Kongo Central province, is one of those areas." | Video by @thomas.nicolon on assignment for @france24 |

MUSIC | SONG OF THE WEEK | With so many of the big names in Congolese music having dropped hit singles in the past few months - including #fallyipupa's 'Eloko Oyo' which has reached 1 million views on Youtube in less than 5 days; we've got to give our song of the week 'Tsha nanu boye' to new comer Robinio Mundibu. We're hooked! Ahhhhhh YO!

ONE TO WATCH | SO YCF! |

Non: Prince Djungu | Écrivain
Romain: "J'ignorais encore nager dans les flots de la vie"

Pourquoi il est important:
Ecrire est l’une des choses que j’essaie de faire plus ou moins bien. A travers ce canal, j’essaie de partager des choses que je crois être intéressante et enrichissantes aux autres. C’est dans cette optique que j’ai écrit ce roman. Ce roman est un partage d’expérience, un partage d’une tranche de vie. Je raconte l’histoire d’un jeune qui a longtemps vécu dans son pays d’origine, le Congo et qui, pour des raisons que je raconte dans le livre est amené à aller vivre en Europe (Belgique) pour par après revenir dans son pays d’origine. Ce livre est un voyage, voyage entre deux cultures, voyage entre deux mondes dans lesquels le personnage principal va être confronté divers questions et questionnements : la question de l’identité, la question du choix et des responsabilités (il est ainé de famille), les échecs de vie, etc. Tout ça dans un style simple, limpide, mélangeant diverses émotions.
EDUCATION
J’ai un master en information et communication obtenu en Belgique (Louvain-la-Neuve). Etant fils d’écrivain et ayant une maman metteur en scène, je pense que j’ai attrapé le virus de l’écriture à la naissance. J’ai grandi et j’ai été élevé dans cet univers, celui du livre. Si d’autres sont nés avec un ballon dans la main, moi c’est avec un livre je crois.

Autre projet ou liens avec le Congo?
Je continue mon petit voyage littéraire. Le modeste succès que m’a procuré ce premier livre m’encourage dans ce sens. Maintenant que je sais nager, je ne dois pas m’arrêter là. J’aimerais aussi faire bénéficier du petit aura que j’ai eue grâce à ce livre... #ycfprofiles #ycongofab #drcongo #congolese #congolese_onfire #congo #kinshasa #congolese_onpoint #team243 #blackexcellence #muanamboka #investincongo #congonarratives #bookstagram #auteur #literature #mwanamboka #inspired #inspiration #gentlemenofcongo
