This powerhouse all-male Argentinian dance company excites audiences with their percussive dance and music spectacle: a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming, and song born from the heart of the South American gaucho (cowboy) tradition.

Malambo began in the 17th Century as competitive duels that tested skills of agility, strength, and dexterity among the gaucho. It soon evolved to include its hallmark zapeteo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. In addition to zapateo, Malambo features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombo, and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords weighted with stones.
