Las Cafeteras

October 4, 2014 @ 7:00 pm



Saturday, October 4, 7 PM

Las Cafeteras creates a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and a community-focused political message. Their Afro-Mexican rhythms, zapateado dancing, and inspiring lyrics tell stories of a community that is looking for love and fights for justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. In a remix of traditional Son Jarocho sounds, Las Cafeteras adds Afro-Caribbean marimbol and cajón, poetry in English and Spanglish, and instruments like jarana, requinto, a donkey jawbone, and a wooden platform called the tarima.

“Uniquely Angeleno mishmash… hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock … Live, they’re magnetic”—LA Times.
$24 ($28 day of); $21 Member ($25); $11 Under 19
