Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts says
With precision footwork, drumming of the bombos, singing and whirling boleadoras (lassos with stones on the end), comes Argentina’s Che Malambo, the thrilling percussive dance and music spectacle celebrating the unique South American cowboy traditions of the gaucho. Danced solely by men, the Malambo began in the 17th century as competitive duels that would challenge skills of agility, strength, dexterity and zapeteo, the fast paced footwork inspired by rhythm of galloping horses. Directed by French choreographer and former ballet dancer, Gilles Brinas, this powerhouse, all-male company of 14 gauchos brings the fiery Malambo traditions and virtuosic dancing to the contemporary stage for an exciting and entertaining show that is perfect for the entire family.

"It was a sight to behold and hear…a window to a rugged horseman's soul." - Splash Magazine
