The powerhouse all-male Argentinian dance company, Che Malambo, excites audiences with their percussive dance and music spectacle.
CHE MALAMBO, created by French choreographer, Gilles Brinas, has been thrilling audiences around the world since its premiere in Paris in 2007. They return to North America following a limited engagement at the sold out Fall for Dance series at New York City Center. Malambo, a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song, is at the heart of the gaucho (South American cowboy) tradition and is now thrilling audiences around the world with this new production created by renowned choreographer Gilles Brinas. The Paris-based Brinas first learned about Malambo while researching traditional dances. He soon fell under its spell and travelled to the Pampas region of Argentina to engage with the gaucho and further his exploration of their traditions. Inspired by the dance and the talent of its exponents, Brinas created Che Malambo so as to share this powerful, passionate form with international audiences.
