Yes, to an extent. But actually, CV and Angola have obvious similarities in terms of the African/Portuguese influence that is evident in music (cabo love and kizomba sometimes get confused). CV music also draws from French-Creole elements found in zouk music from the Caribbean.

I like the music..it is beautiful!!..and I understand the pidgin...As an American..the drumming sounds like random beating but I can pick out 3 basic rhythms the rattles, the string, and the flute...what would an AFRICAN be hearing in the drums that I
would NOT be hearing? are their body parts dancing to at least 5 different rhythms??? Are these dance steps specific or improvised or both??--The Shadodo Igbo video

As an AA, some of it reminds of the way some people dance in AA churches..

It's quite a complex fabric of rhythms, one does not find something so complex in Western music, thus we have a hard time recognizing the regular nature.
Nor does that kind of music follow our Western song structure, like verse verse chorus verse chorus solo chorus chorus etc.
