What is Kizomba – The Origin

Kizomba is a breath whose rhythm is a beating heart, and where the perfect connection between two dancers gives birth to harmony, exaltation of senses and sensuality" D. Campos

Kizomba (a word meaning "Party" in angola ) takes its origin from the Angolan dance Semba, which is also the origin of the Brazilian Samba.

It appeared at the end of 70’s – 80’s, while the young Angolans, although very attached to their traditional dance,sought a new musical identity, and finally found their inspiration and new voice at a concert given by Kassav, a famous French Caribbean Zouk band. Kizomba was born out of this new generation’s desire to bring a touch of sensuality and sweetness to their national Semba.

The influence of the Angolan Kizomba soon spread to all the African Lusophone countries such as Guinea Bisau, Cape Verde, Mozambique. From there the dance quickly found its ticket to Europe via Portugal, where it further developed, by all these Artists, teachers, choregraphers coming from
these Luso-African countries.

As it rapidly gained popularity, Portugal exported Kizomba to various countries in Europe such as France, Spain, Poland, Belgium, Danemark and England.

Today it is rare to find a Latin dance party without Kizomba represented, as well as salsa or bachata.

This "African Tango Zouk", also called "Tango Lusophone" continues to conquer a growing audience of passionate dancers, eager for beauty of gesture and sensuality, but also the indispensable complexity of exchange and trust present in each motions of Kizomba.

This young dance of barely thirty years is booming today, and constantly evolving.

"Kizomba is a tribute to sensuality, an ode to love and sharing. A moment when the woman's beauty, enhanced by her partner, must embody all its essence. " D. Campos
