Kizomba起源于Angola，是传统Angolan samba衍生产物。自1986年Kassav乐队游览了非洲后，，Kizomba音乐又融入了French-Caribbean Zouk风格，形成了性感曲调和非洲节奏融合的一种现代音乐模式。Kizomba音乐基本源于Zouk，区别于Semba，Kizomba音乐更加舒缓，节奏更加浪漫
Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance originating in Angola. It is a derivative of traditional Angolan semba. On this basis, kizomba music emerged from French-Caribbean zouk after 1986 when the band Kassav visited Africa, as a more modern music genre with a sensual touch mixed with African rhythm. Kizomba music is derived primarily from zouk. Unlike semba, kizomba music is characterized by a slower and usually very romantic rhythm.
Kizomba is also performed in other lusophone African countries, in Europe and in the USA. It is known for having a slow,, 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. Countries where kizomba is most popular include Cape Verde , Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Portugal, Mozambique, Equatorial Guinea, São Tomé and Príncipe, East Timor, Brazil and the territory of Macau. Several individuals with a love of the Kizomba culture have been promoting it in other countries, such as Belgium and surrounding nations, where an independent Kizombalove academy has been created by José N'dongala.
Famous Angolan kizomba singers include Bonga, André Mingas, Liceu Vieira Dias, Neide Van-Dúnem, Don Kikas, Calo Pascoal, Heavy C., Puto Portugues, Maya Cool, Matias Damasio, Rei Helder, Pérola, Anselmo Ralph and Irmãos Verdades.
