Las Cafeteras

February 26, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$10 – $15

“Uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock…live, they’re magnetic.”—LA Times

Born and raised east of the Los Angeles River, Las Cafeteras are remixing roots music and telling modern-day stories. Las Cafeteras create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and positive message. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. Using traditional Son Jarocho instruments, Las Cafeteras sing in English, Spanish, and Spanglish and add a remix of sounds from rock to hip-hop to rancheras. Las Cafeteras uses music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities, and create a ‘world where many worlds fit.’

The family show is an abridged version of the full performance with an audience engagement activity following the show.
