The Egyptian belly dance is a sensual dance that is usually performed by single female dancers or a group of female dancers. There is a reason why ancient Kings and Pharaohs always told their servants to bring belly dancers to entertain them in the court when they were bored. Belly dancers are simply beautiful to watch. There is nothing as stimulating and desirable than watching a belly dancer.
Soukous / Kwasa Kwasa /Ndombolo [DRC Congo]
Soukous is a waist shaking dance from the DRC [Congo], which has consecutively transformed into Kwasa Kwasa over the years, and currently the Ndombolo version. This highly suggestive dance is very hot when it’s done by women. Because of its sensual and sex appeal, the dance gained a lot of fans, making it extremely popular. In the 1970s, the dance spread to many African countries and eventually gained ground in Europe in the 80s, especially France and the UK.Another factor which contributed to the immense popularity of Kwasa Kwasa was the attempt by hypocrites to ban the dance in four African countries, including the DRC where it originated.Kwasa Kwasa dance videos were censured in the DRC in 2005, but they are played in other countries, where fans and TV broadcasters love the dance. The ecstatic feeling that this dance leaves you with cannot be denied. It’s simply fantastic.
Baikoko [Tanzania and Kenya]
Baikoko is the Tanzanian and Kenyan name for a sexually suggestive dance that is traditionally done by women. The original and hottest baikoko involves women lining up to dance while an audience watches. The dance involves a sensual rolling of hips and “cutting the waist”, it is especially a breath taking scene to watch a woman do the baikoko while lying face down on the floor. You can’t help but admire the sexy moves, especially if the woman is curvy. A woman has to be skilled, self expressive, agile and flexible to pull this sensuous act.
A dance like baikoko and its variations is known by different names in many African countries. One thing you have to understand is that this dance which is called “twerking” in the USA and social media, is originally African. While the modern dance has been adopted for entertainment and social purposes, the original dance was just a mere ceremonial act, with no suggestive intent. Modernized people who are exposed to daily salacious movies, videos and commercials may think it’s suggestive, but to the traditional African or Arab man, it’s simply a ceremony. For example, in Congo, women of the Luba tribe do the Mutuashi dance (which resembles Baikoko) to pay homage to chiefs or as a celebration.
Sensual Dances in Africa which Resemble Baikoko:
Kidogoro – Tanzania
Mutuashi / Mutwashi – DRC, Angola, Zambia

Massinguitane – Mozambique
Sabar / Leumbeul – Senegal
Funana – Cape Verde
Chakacha / Kata Kiuno / Viuno – Swahili dance
Niiko – Somali

Afro-Arab Malaya dance
Punta – By African tribe called Garifuna in South America
Chaabi Chickat – Morocco
Swazi Reed Dance / Lutsango Dance [Swaziland]
The Swazi reed dance also known as Lutsango dance is included here not because there is something skillful about the dance, but because it’s a beautiful cultural dance displayed by a people who have kept their tradition to this day.While other cultures are melting away and reducing the world’s diversity pool, the Swazis are proud to keep theirs. Can you imagine if everybody dressed and acted like Americans, it would be very boring indeed. That’s why we need diversity.
Another reason why the Swazi ceremonial dance has been included is the unique dancing attire, which a lot of pop/hip hop divas would want to copy, but they can’t because their culture doesn’t have the same freedom as the Swazis. Let’s be honest, a lot of hot female singers like Rihanna,Nickey Minaj and Miley Cyrus secretly wish to go topless and bare their breasts on stage, but they are afraid of the backlash and censure it would cause. Remember the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction? Ha ha sorry you may be millionaires but you don’t have the privilege to go topless, it’s only for the Swazis.
