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.
Professor of boleadoras (a percussion instrument from northwestern Argentina), Patricia Hernandez trained in Belgium, Argentina and Canada. She has performed with Cirque du Trottoir for European tours and joined Cirque du Soleil with a number of boleadoras in the show “Saltimbanco”.
Patricia works with different projects such as TriOrganico, Nahui-ollin. D’Osvaldo Hernandez, with Sonamos Latinoamerica in Latin America, and collaborates on various Latin American percussion projects.
