“When it comes to making instruments out of everyday objects, anything goes for the charismatic cast of “Cambuyon.” Wooden crates, recycled glass bottles and even a small matchbox find new life in the hands and feet of this energetic ensemble. Through body percussion, tap dance, hip hop and drumming, these performers trade robust beats and cultural cadences to form unique rhythms with African, Irish, Spanish and American influences. Part dance, part music and every part exuberant, “Cambuyon” makes the ordinary extraordinary.”
— The New York Times
CAMBUYON is an interdisciplinary high-energy show that combines Tap Dancing, Body Percussion, Hip-Hop, Drumming, Singing and other disciplines closely related to percussion.
The show is the outcome of a long study of the links between traditional Clogging of the north of England, Tap dancing, Hip-Hop, Latin rhythms, Body Percussion, Drumming and the human voice. Seven performers share their vision on how rhythm has evolved through cultures and time in a theatrical and humorous way.
The show is co-produced by the Auditorio de Tenerife (Tenerife Opera House) and the theatre L’Estruch de Sabadell (Barcelona).
