The LA Times describes Las Cafeteras as a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock…live, they’re magnetic.” Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms and rhymes complement inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. Using traditional Son Jarocho folk instruments like the jarana, requinto, quijada (donkey jawbone) and tarima (a wooden platform), they sing in English, Spanish and Spanglish. This socially conscious band uses music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures while creating fabulous music that makes you want to dance! Click HERE for artist's website.
