Event Details

The powerhouse Argentinian ensemble, Che Malambo, celebrates the South American cowboy tradition of the gaucho with their percussive dance and music spectacles. Malambo originated in the 17th century as a competitive duel testing strength, agility, and dexterity among the gaucho. Evolving to include zapateo, the fastpaced footwork inspired by galloping horses, malambo incorporates the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords and weighted with stones. Born from the heart of the gaucho, Che Malambo “storm the stage” (The New York Times) with passion and power!
