We have had 3 years of sensational KIZOBASA festivals with an Afro-Latin focus from 2016 to 2018 and it is now time to introduce a new sister brand focusing on a holistic event catered for African related dances and celebration of PALOP culture through music, culture, art, and dance in Bangkok. Watch out for KIZOBASA in October 2020.

Celebrating the spirit of music, dancing and culture in Bangkok.
Afro ~ Kizomba ~ Semba ~ Tarraxinha ~ Ghetto Zouk ~ Kuduro
Urban KIz ~ Afro- Fusion ~ Tango Kizz ~ other dance forms.

What is the meaning of AFRODEESIAC?
"Afrodeesiac" is a community for spreading the roots of African culture through arts, music, entertainment and festival events for the diaspora of people living in Bangkok and symbolised in the word "dee" as in a happy fun state of being, sà-nùk dee, a truly fun and welcoming gesture for embracing the spirit of good times and celebration. It is addictive like an aphrodisiac with an Afro flavour and vibrant in experience.
