Some Angolans decided to become teacher(s) and they didn’t teach exactly same kizomba as we do in Angola.
Kizomba is my life, you know, Kizomba is like the dancers can be (more) closer, you know.
It’s closer here, because the lady need to do sometimes, she can sleep here, you know, that is kizomba.
I went to do a show in Portugal in 1992, and after we looked at the TV, Angola was like be in a big war, you know.
And we saw, no, it was not good way to go back, to Angola you know, that’s why we stayed there.
Yeah, I have a really good girl friend who lives in Mexico, and she sent me a Youtube of a very famous urban kiz dance couple, Flician and Isabella.
And I watched their video and I was really inspired by that.
So I jumped on a plane to France and I did some dance classes with them.
If you go on the internet you will see many videos about Kizomba, but mostly people don’t know exactly what is Kizomba.
There are a lot of people dancing something else that is not Kizomba.
Change partners. Kizomba is mostly a social dancing.
You can dance with your son, father with his daughter. And people need to me make a difference, it’s really sensual, not sexual.
It’s not a dance for how you look, it’s a dance for how you feel.
Ok, you get it.
