What is Kizomba?

Kizomba is a popular genre of dance originating in Angola, characterized by a slow and usually very slow and romantic rhythm and usually fueled by electronic percussion. It is danced very smoothly with neither tightness nor rigidity and there are frequent simultaneous hip rotations coordinated between dance partners, particularly in the quieter refrains of the music. Semba and urban kizomba are two common types, the latter given by the USC.
