it is not salsa
Just love this song.... semba
I really like the melody of the trumpets: feels dangerous and mysterious .....
Are you sure you would call this semba?
I would call it kompa, because it's slow.
Semba I've learned is faster; like merengue:
I am not sure Our teacher calls this semba. I will ask her about kompa. Thank you for information.
Search for kompa music on YouTube will give you this:
On kompa you can dance a variation of merengue (with more long swings) or zouk.
Semba dance is a variation or combination of kizomba and merengue.
They are somehow related.
People may dance kizomba on kompa music now.
How is merengue related to semba? That song above has no relation to merengue..
I forgot what I meant.
Maybe that kompa is slow music, while semba music is fast.
And that you can dance slow kizomba on kompa, while you dance fast semba on semba
And that you can dance merengue steps on kompa as well as on semba (if you don't know how to dance kizomba, zouk or semba).
On kompa music as wel as kizomba music you can dance zouk.
Don't take the word related to literally in that post. It's just my way of saying those things (music and dances) are tangled or mixed and matched.
Because I love Roberton!!
