Kizomba

Kizomba as a dance and music genre originates from the African country of Angola. The term "kizomba" comes from the linguistic expression Kimbundo, which means "party".

Kizomba was born in the 1980's in the capital of Angola, Luanda, after major musical influences from Carribbean Zouk (not to be confused with Brazilian Zouk) and has its origins from Semba, a popular Angolan music genre. In the 60's big parties between friends were already refered to "Kizombadas" since Kizomba didn't exist as a dance or musical genre at that time.

Brazilian Zouk

You've probably heard of a dance called Lambada from the 80's. Brazilian Zouk actually evolved from Lambada, only much more stylized and elegant!

Zouk-Lambada is a group of closely related dance styles based on or evolved from the lambada dance style. Zouk today is the evolution of Lambada and it is super smooth, romantic, hypnotic with long, fluent, wave-like movements and surprisingly easy to learn! Unlike the fast paced, energetic and explosive LambaZouk. Brazilian Zouk or Zouk-Lambada is used to distinguish the dance from the Caribbean Zouk dance style, which is historically related to, but very different from the Brazilian Zouk-Lambada dance style.
