The Argentine dance company Che Malambo dazzles audiences through precise footwork and rhythmic stomping, drumming of the bombos and singing. Danced solely by men, the Malambo began in the 17th century as a competitive duel that would challenge skills of agility, strength and dexterity. Presenting a percussive dance and music spectacle, Che Malambo celebrates the unique South American cowboy tradition of the gaucho. Directed by French choreographer and former ballet dancer Gilles Brinas, Che Malambo brings fiery Malambo traditions and virtuosic dancing to the contemporary stage for an exhilarating and entertaining show that is perfect for the entire family. “The men dance with a power and passion that builds into a kind of ecstacy” (Boston Globe).
