Los Potros Malambo arrives in Israel for 5 shows at the Suzanne Dellal Center.
Malambo is a native Argentinian folk dance performed by men only. Its music has no lyrics and it is based entirely on rhythm. Los Potros Malambo presents “Kunan,” meaning “the present” in the Quechua language, spoken by the Incas throughout the region from Ecuador to Argentina. For the ancient native peoples, the concept of "living the present" was very important and it is to this spirit that the choreographic work of the Gardella brothers refers. In Kunan, 10 fierce male dancers and three excellent musicians bring this wild spirit to life. Dancing in the traditional form, with stomping boots and beating drums, the dancers share the unbridled passion and intensity of the past in the present.
Los Potros Malambo was founded by Javier and Isaac Gardella, taking the folklore and Argentino Malambo as a source of inspiration. They present these themes in a non-traditional way and use of tools to different artistic disciplines. It began as a family project, the brothers
performing at various folk festivals, earning awards and recognition from their peers. They participated in the 2012 American reality TV series "Q'Viva The Chosen" with Jennifer Lopez, Marc Antonny and Jamie King. In 2014 they were invited to join the successful show "SIGNUM" with the director of Cirque du Soleil. In July 2016 they are specially invited by the Ministry of Culture of the Nation to be part of the Bicentennial Celebrations of the Argentine Independence.
