Learn Kizomba Through Semba

Workshop, Thursday February 7th 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM

What is Semba..?
To begin, Semba is more than “fast Kizomba.” It has a long rich history and the music and dance tell a story.

Semba is used to describe both the music and the dance. The word Semba originates from Massemba (plural) and means “the touch of the bellies” or umbrigada.

The music, often carries stories from Angola’s independence, political issues, civil war, to everyday life. The stories, emotions and attitude of the people, told by the music, are then expressed through the dance.
