The Bwa languages (Bwamu, Bomu) are a branch of the Gur languages spoken by over half a million Bwa people of Burkina Faso and Mali. The Bwa people, and their languages, are one of several called Bobo (Bobo Wule/Oule = Red Bobo) in Bambara. The languages are not mutually intelligible; Ethnologue calculates that the intelligibility of the Ouarkoye and Cwi is 30%, though other varieties are closer.
