Byb Bibene's 15 Years in the Bay Area

Byb made his US debut at SFIAF on May 24, 2007 as part of the Congolese Ensemble, Compagnie Li Sangha. They presented a piece titled Mona Mambo.

Religion Kitendi marks 15 years of Byb's relocating to the Bay Area and founding Kiandada Dance Theater. Please join us in celebrating Byb's anniversary and milestone this weekend.

Here is a photo of Byb (left, front) circa 2006 in Mona Mambo with some of the other members of Li Sangha.
