Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance and music created in Angola late 1989 to early 1990's. It is a fusion of Semba (the predecessor of samba) with the Zouk music styles from the French Caribbean Islands with influences from other Lusophone countries. Derived directly from Zouk music, sung generally in Portuguese or Creole, it is a genre of music with a romantic flow mixed with African rhythm. The kizomba dancing style is also known to be very sensual.
