“Kizomba” was the Kimbundu name for a dance in Angola from as early as 1894 and is a derivative of semba, incorporating Kilapanda and Angolan Merengue as well as Argentine Tango and sung originally generally in Portuguese.

Today Kizomba is one of the most popular social dance genres.

Its dance style is known to be very sensual with soft and fluent, continous movements and only few breaks. Nowadays Pop music often feature this rhythm, because of it’s romantic flow.
