The boleadores was originally an important tool for hunting within the native tribes of South America (especially in Argentina and Uruguay). Since the 1960s, the boleadores are an important element in the folklore. About 70 years ago, an Argentinian dancer, “El Chucaro” Ayala Santiago, had the idea of integrating the Boleadoras as a percussion instrument with a traditional dance of Argentina, Malamabo. Boleadoras consists of two cords with two (nylon) spheres. At the same time, dancing is made as music is made.
The teacher learned to play the bombo (bass drum) and the boleadoras (percussion instrument) from the North-east of Argentina in Belgium, Argentina and Canada. She has toured Europe with Cirque du Trottoir and played boleadoras as part of Cirque du Soleil’s Saltimbanco presentation. She is currently working on her own projects Amalgama and Sin Fronteras with Compagnie Zacatan.
