The origins of Kizomba can be traced to late 1970’s Angola. Kizomba is characterized by a slower, romantic, more sensuous rhythm than the traditional Angolan semba music. Kizomba music emerged as a fusion of Semba, Angolan Merengue, Kilapanga, and further Angolan music influences: It slowed down the cadence of songs and added a stronger bass line to the composition of instruments.

Cultural Influences – The influence of Kizomba is felt in most Portuguese-speaking African countries, but also in Portugal (especially in Lisbon and surrounding suburbs such as Amadora or Almada), where communities of immigrants have established clubs centered on the genre in a renewed Kizomba style. The São Tomean Kizomba music is very similar to the Angolan, Juka being the most notable among the Sãotomeans, and also one of the most notable performers in the genre.

The Boston Kizomba Festival will be held at:

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston North Shore
50 Ferncroft Road, Danvers, MA 01923
