Kalala Ilunga

African - A culture-hero of the Luba people. Son of Mbidi Kiluwe. Mbidi slept with Bulanda and Mabela, the twin sisters of King Nkongolo. The son born to Bulanda was Kalala and he was claimed by Nkongolo. When the boy, tutored by Majuba, developed into a good dancer, the king tried to kill him but, warned by Kahia, he escaped and fled to his real father, Mbidi, whose forces killed the pursuing Nkongolo. Occasionally referred to as Kalala Ilunga.
