They Put On An Incredible Show, But It's What This Judge Said That Brought Them To Tears
These guys seem like much more than just a dance group. Called El Gamma Penumbra, this all male, shadow play troupe must be seen to be believed. Founded in 2010 in Tanauan, Philippines, the men originally just performed hip-hop. After competing in their hometown, they set their sights higher: "Pilipinas Got Talent." At that point, they decided to enhance their performance by adding in shadow play, for a unique edge. In 2011, El Gamma Penumbra, which means "the ray of light behind a man's shadow" in Latin, made it all the way to the grand finals on the Philippines version of the "Got Talent" franchise. In this video, El Gamma Penumbra performed in front of the judges on "Asia's Got Talent," where they won the whole season.
