These Two Crazy Gauchos Celebrate Two Decades On The Strip!
The Crazy gauchos, Eduardo Lomé and Hugo Latorre have been around the block when it comes to the stages of Las Vegas. Founded in 1984 by famed Las Vegas based producer Jorge Dipaola, The crazy Gauchos were once known as “The Los Latin Cowboys!”
Wowing their audiences for over 20 years these two bring traditional Argentinean dance to the modern eye in a way you just might not expect! But few who are familiar with Vegas over the past 20 years have missed these two crazy cowboys, with their raucous attitudes and fancy footwork you will laugh and be amazed at the complicated rhythms and dance routines originating from the heart of South American Cowboy culture.
You will never quite know just what’s coming next, as even the audience will get dragged into all the zaniness, be careful in the front row because it just might be you! But the awe factor is ever present with this duo, taking a traditional “Boleadoras”, made of two long ropes with smooth round stone balls attached to the end, the Crazy Gauchos may use Plastic, but the pain factor is present all the same as they will flail the two stones in circles at mind bending speeds. Keeping to the intricate rhythm of the traditional “Bombo” Drum, the gaucho swinging the “Bolo” will control the beat using tap-dancing and the movement of his feet. As well as adding in any practiced maneuvers or intricacies within the beat, the drummer has to be ready to change on the drop of the dime as the routine is almost faster than your eyes can even keep up with!
In the old days the “Bombo Drums” were a regular part of South American culture all over, as the conquistadors settled more and more of the South American regions the unique Gauchos began popping up all over. Originally devising the “Bolo” as a hunting tool, the “Bombo-Drum” and gaucho dance were used as pass-times around the campfire on hunting trips. It was also a form of competition between the Gauchos, as one man would perform a dance with a pose, and the other would repeat the move and add a move of his own, this would continue until one could no longer copy the moves of the other.
While the two incorporate tradition as the base of their act, they too have started a new Las Vegas tradition as there are few who don’t remember the Los Latin Cowboys from their days at the Historical “Splash” variety show! Now a part of Las Vegas’ now number 1 variety show, The Los Latin Cowboys may have changed the name, but the act hasn’t changed a bit, and don’t worry as these two Gauchos are still one of the funniest acts on The Strip!
