Argentinian Dance and Percussion Ensemble

Prepare to be amazed by MALEVO, a breathtaking blend of tradition and innovation created by the visionary director, choreographer, and dancer, Matías Jaime. This extraordinary company has transformed the classic Argentine dance of Malambo, infusing it with a bold, avant-garde flair that pushes the boundaries of performance art.

Originally performed by the Gauchos of the Pampas, Malambo's virility and dexterity are now elevated through a fusion with Flamenco and live onstage percussion. The result? A heart-pounding spectacle of rhythm and movement that will leave you spellbound.

Set against the backdrop of thunderous drums, MALEVO’s choreography is a mesmerizing mix of fast leg movements, energetic zapateados, and the skilled use of boleadoras, the traditional leather-and-stone hunting tools. This dynamic performance transcends traditional dance, offering an extraordinary sensory experience that captivates audiences worldwide.

From Las Vegas to New York, Dubai to Paris, MALEVO has taken the world by storm. Named the “Cultural Ambassador of the National Identity of Argentina,” the company has wowed audiences in prestigious venues across the globe, including performances with Cirque du Soleil, Ricky Martin's Las Vegas Show, and a year-long season at Universal Studios in Osaka, Japan. They’ve even reached the semi-finals on the hit television show America’s Got Talent.

MALEVO has electrified audiences at top festivals like Global Village (Dubai), Santa Lucía Festival (Mexico), Lollapalooza (Argentina), Dance Open (Russia), and many more. Their talent was celebrated in a special Sony Latinoamerica program, “Malevo has talent,” bringing their unique art to Spanish-speaking viewers around the world.

Dive deeper into the world of Malambo with the “Malevo Art Factory,” an online platform offering dance lessons in Malambo and other disciplines, available to students globally. Currently touring internationally with their show “Xtreme Malambo,” MALEVO continues to develop new, groundbreaking performances. Don’t miss your chance to witness this spectacular fusion of tradition and modernity. Experience MALEVO – where the spirit of Argentina meets the pulse of the future.
