We have shown Mr. Bjerre two different videos: kizomba and semba. He has agreed to give us his opinion, we are very grateful for his sincerity and kindness.
“I don’t really have much to say about it, save that they seem to convey a great deal of intimacy through their movements, and that the music feels celebratory, and life affirming”
We appreciate the lines Mr. Bjerre have written about his impressions of the dance, and we hope that Mr. Bjerre will excuse us, as the sound quality of the videos is not very good.
