THE GOTAMBÓ SHOW!
The show "Afrikano" takes you on an unforgettable journey to the heart of Buenos Aires. It is the perfect symbiosis of live music and dance, immersing the audience in the world of Argentine Tango inspired by the beats of Africa. Visitors experience an unforgettable blend of passion, sensuality, vibrant rhythms, and enthusiasm for life.
However, it’s not your typical show on a stage! And it’s not simply another Tango show!
It’s a dynamic, 360° immersive event experience, that is full of surprising elements and a new style of music, that will leave the audience in awe.
Told through the journey of one man, "Afrikano" narrates the story of a voyage through Tango, complemented by a significant element that has been forgotten over time: the rhythm of African drums. Combined with colorful costumes, a magnificent live orchestra, and spectacular choreography, the show unveils the eternal interplay of melancholy, pain, desire, and the everlasting yearning for freedom and adventure. "Afrikano" celebrates a dazzling tribute: to Argentine Tango, to passion, and to life.
The most prestigious Tango dancers with worldwide recognition and stage experience from Argentina dance in the Gotambó show. In their choreographies, they interpret the music of Gotambó with passion, emotion, virtuosity, and sharp movements.
Our percussionists with great agility and technique give the final touch to the Gotambó show. They show to the audience the origin, the very deep and original provenance of Rhythm in Tango and at the same time embody the new essential element of Gotambó. They reveal the hidden rhythms in Argentinian Tango.
The Gotambó show works with high-level Tango musicians. Their collaboration in the show is essential, as their music builds the foundation for a dynamic and powerful atmosphere and spectacle. But in Gotambó they are not longer the owners of the Rhythm. Gotambó innovates and incorporates the element of rhythm, played by African percussionists.
Outstanding singers, capable of transporting the public with their voice to the most exciting moments of the Gotambó show.
PETER GABRIEL 2022
Rhythm is at the center of everything. Life begins with
Then in the dark warm safety of the womb, the first
external beat we hear comes from our mother's heart.
What is that heartbeat doing? Its pumping blood to all our cells, just like it pumped
blood into the sex organs of the baby's mother and father.
Blood is the juice of the rhythm, and the rhythm
always brings us back to the heart.
This pulse, this vibration, this repeated pattern, marks
out the beginning and the end.
If there's a pulse, there's a rhythm. If there's rhythm, there's life.
