What is Kizomba
Kizomba is an African rhythm, developed in Angola mostly since the late 70s. Being born in a continent with a effervescent musical history, kizomba is a result of an evolution: young generations, listening to traditional music like semba, felt something was missing - a modern and sensual touch. Adding an electronic percussion with a slow and extremely sensual rhythm… kizomba was born.
During the passing years kizomba was developed and spread worldwide as a music that catches your ear and a dance that catches your soul. Many other related sounds and dancing patterns have been developing at the same time, not only in Angola but also Cape Verde and Antilles among others (tarrachinha, coladera, zouk…)
Dancing kizomba is a unique experience – standing really close together, partners move in sensual wavy movement, where leading and being led finds a new dimension.
As a dance that gives you not only full pleasure but also the basic steps to other related rhythms, kizomba is all about “connecting people”…
