Kizomba Na Park is an ode to the world-renowned "Kizomba Na Rua" in Luanda, Angola - the birthplace of Kizomba and Semba. In Angola, music and dance play a central role in cultural life. Prior to the pandemic, people gathered in the Marginal (ocean-front promenade) to “Kizomba na Rua” (dancing kizomba on the street) every Sunday evening . The best dancers from Luanda, including many teachers and kizomba champions usually showed up. Everyone is very friendly and all newcomers are quickly invited to dance. This event is free: the organizers just bring their laptop and a speaker and play amazing music. We're hoping to bring a little bit of this experience to the Triangle area!
