El Picahueso Malambo, consecrated

The whole of Mendoza was consecrated as a revelation at the Cosquín Folklore Festival 2020. Picahueso Malambo jumped into the big leagues.


Young people from Mendoza   they got the place in the Folklore Festival   Cosquin   when finishing first in the selective Pre Cosquín   , which takes place every year in Junín. There they were winners in the category”   malambo set   ”. The dancers who make up El Picahueso Malambo are from   Santa Rosa, Malargüe, Lujan, Maipú, Rivadavia, Junín and San Carlos.  

The combination of 12 Malambistas and 4 musicians came to la Docta on January 3, where they faced the   knockout instances in which about 50 combinations participated   in the preview of the final of Pre Cosquín.

The set had been presented for the last 3 years at the defining stage of the contest, without being able to win. So,   El Picahueso was chosen the best for the first time. The key was to offer something different from previous editions. They managed to surprise and thrill the jury of the 49th Pre-Cosquín and were selected as one of the 12 new values   who managed to reach the main grid of the renowned festival.

All the winners and the eight special mentions of the contest animated the    Winners Night    which the public was able to attend with free and free admission.

In addition, they fulfilled the goal of reaching the main stage of Cosquín. As a plus, the Mendoza got a   special recognition for his “Tribute to the Liberator Army”   . After ten days of festival, Picahueso Malambo was selected as the “Revelation” of 2020.

It is important to note the support that the members of the group received for their stay in Córdoba. The provincial government, next to the municipal government, made their respective contributions for the transfer, stay and food of the artists.
