In 2013, an initiative was launched to create a Kizomba Worldwide Platform. A co-venture between Semba Communicao & PMP events of Portugal was formed to promote kizomba in the world. The focus was based on right divulation & teaching of Kizomba by the Players involved who represented and came from roughly 12 countries from around the world. Chalianna & Yair were selected as the only representatives of the US & the Americas.
Some of the initiatives were:
- Create a group of international players (mainly kizomba dancers/teachers);
- Travel to Angola in October 2013, all the players together, to learn more about the culture, the people and the dance.
- Creation of a video tv program: going to festivals around the world, to collect images of the festivals to insert on the platform.
