It's a shame to have a place like this and not see it put to good use, so my friend and fellow drummer Duncan Moore and I thought it woul …

This is a MeetUp for all those excited about Kizomba in Southern California! Kizomba (a Angolan word meaning party) takes its origin from the Angolan dance Semba, which is also the origin of the Brazilian Samba. It appeared at the end of 80’s – 90’s, while the young Angolans, although very attached to their traditional dance, sought a new musical identity, and finally found their inspiration and new voice at a concert given by Kassav, a famous French Caribbean Zouk band. Kizomba was born out of …
