Gauchos (Argentinian cowboys) created the malambo in the 1600s. As a means to prove a man’s dance prowess and vigor, the malambo is percussive, aggressive, and competitive. Just as Riverdance© elevated Irish music and dance, Che Malambo delivers 14 Argentinean dancers in a theatrical spectacle of heart-pounding, foot-stomping, high-energy masculinity.
