In a thrilling spectacle of percussive dance and music, Che Malambo brings awe-inspiring precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming, singing, and whirling boleadoras (lassos) to our stage. Danced solely by men, the fiery malambo tradition began in the 17th century as competitive duels that would challenge skills of agility, strength, and zapeteo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of the galloping horses of their native Argentina.
Following a critically-acclaimed performance at City Center last season, this powerhouse company of 14 gauchos makes their Brooklyn debut.
