Pedro Figari's art: Candombe The word candombe comes from the prefix Ka and the word Ndombe in Kimbundu language. This language belonged to the Bantu tongues that were spoken in Congo, Angola and other parts of southern Africa. The word was introduced by the population from Benguela in Angola, which were the principal Ndombe people among African ethnic groups in Montevideo.
