Mutomboko is one of the biggest and most significant ceremonies in eastern and southern Africa, although beyond the region it´s nearly unknown. It is held by the Luba-Lunda people from Kazembe state in Mwansabombwe/Kazembe, northeastern Zambia. People are coming from all over the country and even from neighboring DR Congo. Mutomboko is the war dance of the Luba-Lunda, danced by the king Chief Mwata Kazembe at the end of two days of rituals and paying homage to the ancestors, dancing and chanting. On the afternoon of the first day people gather together in front of the royal compound for Mutentamo, a part of the ceremony where Chief Mwata Kazembe could announce new Sub-Chiefs and groups are dancing to impress the Chief.
