Afrohouse originated as a dance in Angola in the 1990s. Afrohouse music was brought by Angolan DJs to Angola from South Africa. In Angola, other sounds and traditional rhythms were added to it. At first, people didn't know how to dance to this music, so they danced what they knew - kuduro. But Afrohouse music is slower and more "chill". Therefore, the dancers began to adjust some kuduro steps. Gradually, the original Afrohouse movements began to emerge, which are still being developed today. Afrohouse has nothing to do with house dance, it has a completely different energy and feeling. Afrohouse can be combined with other dance styles, but it is necessary to keep the original feeling.
Kuduro originated in the 1980s in Angola as a dance style. The music to which this dance is danced is called batida and was created at the same time by mixing semba, zouk, soca, house and traditional Angolan rhythms. At first it was more instrumental, later the music began to "sing" (rap). Kuduro in translation means hard ass = heavy ass and it is a very aggressive and fast dance. Mainly step combinations (footwork) are used, body isolation and pelvic movements are also used. The steps and combinations that were created were named after the dancers who invented them. Nowadays, this is no longer the case and we find that 60% of movements are irrelevant. Ndombolo (from the Congo), Kwassa kwassa and soukous also had a significant influence on the dance. The representative of the kuduro is Tony Amado.
