We pledge to do what is right for the Spirit of Kizomba: from Acknowledging its origins to becoming better dancers to sharing the dance.

What is Kizomba? Kizomba dance and music originates in Angola and mixes influences of traditional Semba with zouk and compas music from the French Caribbean. On this basis, Kizomba music emerged as a more modern music genre with a sensual touch mixed with African rhythm. Unlike Semba, Kizomba music is characterised by a slower and usually very romantic rhythm, sung generally in Portuguese. In Europe the word "kizomba" is used for any type of music derived from zouk, even if not of Angolan origin. It was the Kimbundu name for a dance in Angola as early as 1894. The Kizomba dancing style is also known to be very sensual and flows with a music of a romantic flow. Kizomba is a centerpiece to a healthier, happier, richer lifestyle. We want to popularize Authentic Angolan Kizomba in our town, and provide opportunities for learning and dancing Mwangole Kizomba.
