  • Gaucho / Boleadoras act / Fireropes

    Milton and Gala represent an extraordinary number that mixes precision, movement and rhythm - the Gaucho number with the Boleadoras.


    Traditionally the gauchos, the South American cowboys of the pampas of South of Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina, used them like weapon to hunt the cattle. They introduced the boleadoras in their folkloric dance with accompaniment of the bombo leguero (drum).

    Later the dance with the boleadoras had a scenic putting with a very strong visual impact. Also today is a circus number technically very developed and of great ability.


    Milton dominates the virtuosity and technicity of the dance of the gauchos, near Gala his representation is definitely stylized and modern.

    He also emphasizes his taste for innovation, playing the guitar with the boleadoras, fusing boleadoras with piano and classical music, or demonstrating his precision with the boleadoras.

    Their taste of experimenting led them to the Guinness Book. Milton is the first gaucho with the boleadoras making some record.
