🌟Differences Between Lambada and Brazilian Zouk🌟

🔥ORIGINS

Lambada: Emerged in the late 1980s in Pará, Brazil, influenced by Carimbó, Forró, and Merengue.

Brazilian Zouk: Evolved from Lambada in the early 1990s, incorporating Samba de Gafieira, Salsa, and Contemporary dance influences.

🔥MUSIC

Lambada: Danced to fast, tropical music with strong percussion.

Brazilian Zouk: Danced to a variety of music, including modern Zouk, R&B, and pop, with tempos ranging from slow to fast.

🔥STYLE AND TECHNIQUE
