UA Presents CHE MALAMBO (Tucson)

The powerhouse all-male Argentinian dance company, Che Malambo, excites audiences with their percussive dance and music spectacle. Malambo is a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song which originated in the 17th century in the South American pampas. It evolved from competitive duels amongst the Argentine gaucho (South American cowboy) that tested agility, strength and dexterity. It soon evolved to include what is now its hallmark, zapeteo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. Malambo also features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords and weighted with stones.

“A thrilling display…fourteen stomping,drumming, roaring men pounded rapid-fire rhythms into the ground with many surfaces of their feet – heels, toes, inside and especially the outside edges – and with spinning boleadoras, floor skimming stones attaced to lassos…a rousing group spectacle.”  THE NEW YORK TIMES

Che Malambo was born from the heart of the gaucho tradition and is now thrilling audiences around the world with this new production created by director and choreographer Gilles Brinas. Tickets $19-45.
