Afrohouse us a dance style with roots in Angola. Coming to prominence through the brilliance of Angolan-based artists such as Fabio Dance, Os Pilukas and Os Moikanos, the style (as the name suggests) is a synthesis of House (US), Kuduro (a high-energy dance style to electronic music - also called Kuduro - first developed in the 1980’s in Angola) and Traditional Dances i.e. Rebita also from Angola. There are various elements within the Afrohouse dance style: from the early days of simple patterns and deep grooves, to later its fast and intricate footwork, all accompanied by a sense of play and vibrant/sometimes outrageous characterisation make Afrohouse such a joyous and infectious style. Vibes vibes vibes!!!
