“Amazing and exciting!” - The Herald
A first in the world of Malambo! "Che Malambo" arose from the language and expressions of the Gaucho experience as a solo dance performed by men. Award winning choreographer, Gilles Brinas, has adapted two Malambo styles featuring powerful foot stomping from the North and the subtler Southern style in bare feet. The rhythms are echoed by "bombos," large, fat, rustic drums, "boleadoras," or bolas (long, thin ropes with two or more stones attached at the ends), accentuated by passionate songs and live musical accompaniment.
Che Malambo is a vibrant, exciting, fiery, Argentinian music and dance theatrical experience. It is a wonderfully wild spectacle of drumming and foot stomping dance choreographed and produced by Gilles Brinas. Che Malambo is an inspired interpretation of the all-male Argentine Malambo tradition and is infused with primal energy and diabolic rhythms. Suitable for all ages. This show is like a Latino Stomp!
