Tribe Information

About the Biombo People

The Biombo occupy an area in DRC, just south of the confluence of the Lulua and Kasai Rivers. Their artistry has been influenced by both neighboring Kuba and Eastern Pende. It is believed that the Biombo use masks during circumcision ceremonies, though documentation of their history and rituals is almost non existent.
