Event Description:
Hailing from East L.A., Las Cafeteras are taking the music scene by storm with their urban folk sound. Remixing traditional son jarocho music from Veracruz, Mexico with Afro-Caribbean, folk, hip-hop, and pop sounds, Las Cafeteras’ brings this vibrant musical fusion to life with eclectic world instruments like the West African marimbol and cajón, Spanish stringed jaranas and requintos, and Latin American quijada, or donkey jawbone. As part of their edgy, cross-genre sound, Las Cafeteras integrates inspiring lyrics as well as zapateado dancing, a form of Latin American tap marked by rhythmic stomping of the feet. The BBC has praised Las Cafeteras for creating “urgent, relevant music” and their infectious live performances have been called “magnetic” by the LA Times.
