Kizomba came to life in the late 1970s in Africa. It is a musical genre that was particularly listened to and danced in Angola. Its origins are from the faster paced Semba. This unique dance continues to gain in popularity and has reached many other nations. Like many other dances, Kizomba continues to evolve with each new region and their dancers that it touches. Kizomba dance in Toronto is developing its own unique style also.
Now the Toronto Latin dance scene has a new element… Kizomba. And at many social dances now, you’ll find Kizomba is played along with Salsa and Bachata. Kizomba, with its natural, slow, rhythmic sound makes it good for couples dancing like Salsa and Bachata.
