Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance originating in Angola. Unlike semba, kizomba music is characterized by a slower and usually very romantic rhythm. It is one of the most popular styles among local afro and Latin dancers, alongside cross body salsa and sensual bachata, which were dominant before.
It is known for having a slow, insistent, somewhat harsh, yet sensuous rhythm; the result of electronic percussion. It is danced accompanied by a partner, very smoothly, slowly and sensuously, and with neither tightness nor rigidity. There are frequent simultaneous hip rotations coordinated between dance partners, particularly in the quieter refrains of the music.
