WHAT IS KIZOMBA?
The dance from Angola is danced very smoothly, slowly and sensuously, and with very fluid movements. 
In addition, frequent simultaneous hip rotations coordinated between dance partners, particularly in the quieter refrains of the music. and the music is characterized by a slower and usually very romantic rhythm, sung generally in Portuguese. 
It’s a slow sexy dance. Partners dance quite close. Music is generally sang in Portuguese but these days also many influence of Semba and Zouk.
