Name of a brazilian dance ! 7 letters

The history of the danceLambada first appeared in north eastern Brazil in the 1980s, having descended directly from the traditional Brazilian dance Carimbó. The dance became very popular in Salvador and Bahia and soon established itself in the city of Porto Seguro.

Lambada is sensual and graceful and danced in couples to a one-two-three beat. The rhythm is a fusion of Carimbó and Merengue and the dance incorporates elements of Forró, Samba, Merengue and Maxixe.

The word ‘Lambada’ comes from an obscure Portuguese word which refers to the wave-like motion of a whip. This flowing wave motion is reproduced by the dancers' bodies and is one of the main elements that distinguishes Lambada from other Latin dances.
