From the coastal South African nation of Angola, comes Kizomba dance. Angola is bordered by The Republic of Congo to the north, Namibia to the south, Zambia to the east and the mighty Atlantic Ocean on its western coast. Kizomba is derived from the word, Kimbundo, meaning party. Kimbundu is a minority Bantu tribal language spoken in Angola and influenced by the Portuguese. Angola was settled by Portuguese who set up trading posts there in the 16th century.
