Tempe events include, Che Malambo, the powerhouse all-male dance company performing at  the Tempe Center for the Arts on April 7, 2018 at 8 p.m.

Malambo began in 17th century Argentina as a dueling display of agility, strength, dexterity and zapateo – the fast paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. Malambo is a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song that 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 learned about Malambo while researching traditional dances. He traveled 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 in order to share this powerful, passionate form with international audiences.

Razor sharp precision footwork, rhythmic stomping and pounding drums are at the heart of the South American gaucho tradition in this thrilling spectacle of music and dance. With their whirling boleadoras (stones attached to lassoes), the fiery Malambo performers will burst onto the Tempe Center for the Arts.
