With its passionate drumming, explosive dance, and fiery theatrics, MALEVO is Argentina’s answer to Stomp and Riverdance! This dexterous all-male ensemble, created by Choreographer/Dancer Matias Jaime, draws heavily from the Argentinian folk dance Malambo and merges elements of flamenco, tango, and Irish stepdance with percussion to create an extraordinary visual and sensory theatrical experience. Set to a pulsating rhythm of drums, the choreography combines the use of boleadoras, a leather and stone hunting tool used by Gauchos, with fast leg movements, energetic zapateados (stomping), and quick cepillados (“brushing”/”scrubbing”). MALEVO was named “Cultural Ambassador to the National Identity of Argentina,” and has collaborated with artists such as Ricky Martin and Cirque du Soleil. The group was featured at the 2022 FIFA World Cup and stunned television audiences on NBC’s America’s Got Talent so much it was invited to return for America’s Got Talent: All-Stars in January 2023. Backed by a live band, MALEVO is a fiery, pulsating South American sensation slaying audiences across the globe. Don’t miss this dynamic troupe’s electrifying Hylton Center debut!
