Is Kizomba just dry humping?

Well, it is awful kind of music ...

Yes, it is tarraxinha as written in the clip title ... and yes, you can dance it to any music with some beat, even bachata :)

I actually posted it because tarraxinha shown here looks ok to me, unlike his tarraxinha video lesson recorded about a year earlier and also posted here a few months ago, that I didn't like ... don't know did he actually get it in the meantime, or it was the case of teachers not dancing what they teach
 
While every time someone forces me into kizomba room it's dry humping, there is more to kizomba than that..
Battle between two Asian capitals. Amazing!

 
What music is that? I found it hard to hear the rhythm that would make want to dance kizomba to that music. I hear a lot of this kind of music in European kizomba rooms.

All them seem to be doing is tarraxinha in that clip and very little kizomba. If that is what you call dancing kizomba, then the background music doesn't matter. They could be doing that to any music, and it will look the same.
They are dancing tarraxinha, not kizomba. They can actually dance kizomba and she is a lovely follow (or at least was a couple of years back when I got the chance to dance with her), but that requires different music ofc. Although, Nemanja is now more of a fusion/urban kizz guy.

The music is: C4 Pedro - Robocop

Kinda splitting the hair! Only kizomba dances dance tarraxinha! Though see it creeping into the 'sensual' bachata sometimes.

What music do you dance tarraxinha to :D

Well, it indeed is quite fuzzy. There sure are dances and songs where you know it's definitely tarraxa but there are also many songs and dances where it ends up being a mix between slow & static kizomba and tarraxinha. Apart from those clear tarraxa songs, I often say that I dance sort of tarraxinha to songs that feel static to me, i.e. I in my mind they don't musically fit with doing any steps, so I just dance in place - shifting weight and bunda/body movement.

Songs that I like to dance in place/tarraxinha but I would probably put them under ghetto zouk:
