Las Cafeteras

Friday, June 13, 2014

7 & 8:30 pm

  • For Everyone
With a foundation in the traditional Mexican music called Son Jarocho, Las Cafeteras create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and a community-focused political message. Las Cafeteras add 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 to create a sound uniquely their own.
