Kizomba is a popular genre of music and dance originating in Angola circa 1984. It means party in Kimbundu, a Bantu language spoken by the Ambundu or Mbundu of Angola.
Kizomba music was developed by musicians who were influenced by semba music and also by zouk music from the Caribbean French Antilles.
The Kizomba dance roots come from Semba. Kizomba was traditionally danced in a circular pattern whereas Urban Kiz is danced in a straight line. Kiz Fusion has more flexible rules and includes moves and techniques from other dance styles.
