What is Kizomba?

Kizomba is a musical genre and a dance that began to be composed between the end of the 70s and the beginning of the 80s in Angola.

Dancing has become very popular in Europe in recent years, particularly in Portugal, France and Spain. It is a social dance in pairs in which musicality, softness and simplicity are characteristic.

Normally, an intimate hug is generated; the man embraces the woman with the right arm and the woman surrounds with his left arm the neck of the man, supporting the torso with delicacy in him (although in Cape Verde for example, the contact will be more centered in the hip). The left arm of the man holds the right of the woman blocking the torso. The man’s conduction is mainly through the torso, but also with the arms and hips. In the kizomba, the steps and the walked figures are performed with a paused rhythm to the rhythm of the beat (percussion), so that the man normally seeks that the woman walks in the most relaxed way possible, taking small steps and proposing changes of smooth rhythm. It is always sought that the man improvises the movements from the music, giving the dance a feeling of great softness and harmony.

As a fusion of several styles of dance (passada, saida, tarraxa …) there are different registers within the dance of the Kizomba. The passada brings the figures walked with the man and the woman together, in the saida separates the woman a little and she goes out to walk on the man’s side, and in the tarraxa one does not walk, but the man marks the cadence of the music smoothly with the hip during the musical breaks in which there is no whipping.
