The Luba people also known as Baluba are a cluster of powerful ancient grassland and forest-dwelling hunters, kingdom-builders, highly spiritual cum agriculturalist Bantu-speaking peoples of Central Africa, and the largest ethnic group in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are indigenous to the Katanga, Kasai, and Maniema regions which were historic provinces of present-day Democratic Republic of the Congo. Their population is close to 14 million.

Shakka Ahmose, the singer who put Kemetic spirituality to a tune that today’s struggling youth can hear, has made the top 100 at ReverbNation. It is no surprise since he is singing the message of our Ancestors. He speaks right to our DNA.
Congratulations, Shakka Ahmose! We in Vodun News and Ile Baalat Teva wish you even greater success and opportunity to shine like the Morning Star.
Warning: have tissues handy. This song brings healing tears.
“See my Mother
See my Father.
Never ever let them tell you who you are.
‘See my Mother.
See my Father.
See my reflection, and it’s bright as the Morning Star.” — Shakka Ahmose

TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE is a treasure trove of articles and photos on a variety of African cultures. It’s one of those must-visit sites on the internet if you’re exploring or reclaiming your culture. Every time I visit, I find something new and wonderful that I didn’t know before.
