Malevo consists of a group of eight men from Buenos Aires, Argentina. They like to consider themselves the "Magic Mikes" of Argentina. The members grew up in poverty, some with no electricity and power. To make ends meet, the members have jobs such as carpentry, construction, and gas attendance. Most of the team have known each other since they were little kids.
