Semba 1

The term Semba comes from a dance called massemba. It became popular in the fifties thanks to the group N’gola Ritmos. This is a style from Angola that contributed to the birth of Kizomba.

The differences between these two styles are numerous: the speed, the proximity of the partner and the more open position than in the kizomba.
