A thrilling display... 14 stomping, drumming, roaring men pounded rapid-fire rhythms into the ground with many surfaces of their feet heels, toes, inside and especially outside edges and with spinning boleadoras. The New York Times

Celebrate the thrilling South American cowboy traditions of the gaucho with Argentinas Che Malambo, a powerhouse company of 14 performers. Malambo began in 17th century Argentina as a dueling display of agility, strength, dexterity and zapateo the fast paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. With precision dancing, rhythmic stomping, pounding drums and whirling boleadoras (stones attached to lassoes), the fiery malambo traditions of yesterday are transformed for the contemporary stage in this percussive dance and music spectacle.
