Guerriero arrived in Laborde with a simple idea: Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso. But this story captures your interest from the first page… An exciting work that mixes reportage and fiction; a book that is both moving and strangely familiar.

The National Festival of Malambo de Laborde. And in January ofwhen he returned to compete in Laborde, Guerriero went with him. To safeguard the prestige of the contest, the champions have made a tacit pact: Her intention was to tell the story of a folkloric dance competition, as secret as it is prestigious, that has been taking place there since Because the characters that populate it seem to have something that we once had, something that still exists in a lot of families.


This bus stops all along the way, and is the place where they, as well as some neighbours and friends, live, eat and sleep for the six days of the festival.

A Simple Story – Editorial Anagrama

During the five minutes that a show lasts, the dancer reaches speeds that demand similar amounts of energy to a runner of the hundred meters, only that they are not required to sustain it for nine seconds but for five minutes. But the second night of the competition witnesses a kna become paralysed on stage, and at that precise moment she decides that the story would no longer be about the history lsila the festival but also about that man: Inshe published American Landscape, a collection of twenty-one profiles of personalities from Spanish and Latin American culture.

And Guerriero, from a distance as intimate as it is implacable, as deep as historla stark, as discreet as it is intrusive, accompanies him on this journey up until the final night.

The festival concludes every year with the coronation of a man who has, in the world of folklore, the repute of an Olympic hero and who is awarded with the title of champion.

That of somebody who steadily moves forward through a dream urged on by the most dangerous of feelings: Malambo, a traditional dance among Argentine gauchos, consists of a sustained tapping of the feet, uan, for its execution in the competition, requires great technical ability and uncommon levels of athletic training.


Inshe published a collection of articles called Strange Fruits Aguilar Colombia and Argentina which, inwas published by Alfaguara in Spain. You can read an excerpt in English in here.

And so she began to follow, first in Laborde, then in Buenos Aires, that son of a modest family that survived by hietoria music and folklore classes in primary institutes and schools in the urban sprawl of Buenos Aires.

In Januarythe Argentinean journalist Leila Guerriero travelled to a town with six thousand inhabitants, in the centre of her country.

Something that many of us would love to have again. As a result, the malambo which grants them their crown is also the last ones of their lives.
