WYSIWYG

What You See Is What You Get. This is a journal blog, an explore-blog, a bit of this and that blog. Sharing where the mood takes me. Perhaps it will take you too.

Now for a different rendition of the malambo. Here, the group El Picahueso dance a tribute to the 'liberating army' (let's not look down that telescope) in an annual competition held in Cosquin for all things 'folk'. This rendition is very different yet still holding to all malambo principles... and it won the group first prize in the malambo section - then they were declared the 'revelation of the 2020 Pre Cosquin Festival'. This video is from the 'heats', as it is actually better viewing than the finals one. I am starting it three minutes in because there was quite a bit of preamble...

  2. That was fun to watch. I love to listen to the sounds of the feet without watching all the time. It is amazing how well they keep up with the music.

  10. How amazing and fun to watch. I've not seen malambo before. A friend from Argentina once described it to me as tap dancing, but clearly I didn't have the right impression.

  11. Wonderful. The skinny pants give a slightly different feel to the dance. namaste, janice xx

  12. We both liked it (cat with face against screen agaon) and particularly love that it's acceptable to modernize or theme performances. Keeping anything 'relevant' to now helps keep all its forms alive.
