What is Kizomba?

Kizomba Dancers Tribal
Kizomba is both a style of music, and a beautiful partner dance, developed in Portuguese-speaking Africa from the late 1980’s to early 1990’s. Kizomba music, born as a fusion of African rhythms and Caribbean Zouk, is a romantic genre of music generally sung in Portuguese. Kizomba’s popularity is growing rapidly around the world.

For those who have never danced, Kizomba is easily accessible. The basics are simple. For those who are currently dancing partner dances such as salsa, bachata, and merengue, Kizomba is a breath of fresh air. You’ll find it comfortable to slip into, and challenging enough to keep you dancing it for years to come.

We are happy to be involved in introducing it to North America. Watch the videos below, and fall in love with Kizomba!
