Bay Chamber Concert – “Che Malambo”

Event date/time:  March 28, 2017 – 7pm

Che Malambo The powerhouse Argentinian dance company, Che Malambo, will bring their fast-paced footwork, explosive drumming, and whirling lasso boleadoras to Rockport, Maine. This thrilling display of dance and music celebrates the unique traditions of the South American cowboy. Danced solely by men, the traditional Malambo began in the 17th century as a competitive duel that challenged agility, strength, and speed. Today, Che Malambo performs the dance style re-imagined.

Location Address: Strom Auditorium, Rockport, ME
