Bantu* Culture
(* denotes a culture rather than a country)

Background: Bantu languages are spoken in a very large area, including most of Africa below the bulge into the Atlantic to the southernmost tip. Four of the major Niger-Congo languages (Rwanda, Makua, Xhosa, and Zulu) are Bantu languages. Swahili is a Bantu lingua franca important both in commerce and in literature.
