Malambo is a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song, which live at the heart of the South American gaucho, or cowboy. 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 bombos, and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords weighted with stones.
