Las Cafeteras

Sunday, March 15, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Las Cafeteras is a seven-piece band that blends Afro-Mexican rhythms, zapateado and Afro-Caribbean music, paired with diverse instrumentation and poetry in both English and "Spanglish." Born in the streets of Los Angeles, Las Cafeteras offer infectious live performances that cross genre and musical borders. They have played with bands such as Mexican icons Caifanes, Lila Downs, Colombian superstar Juanes, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli, folk/indie favorites Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and most recently with Talib Kweli. The sound of Las Cafeteras is brought to life by the eclectic instrumentation used, which include jarana's, requinto, a donkey jawbone, a West African bass instrument called the Marimbol and a wooden platform called the Tarima used to dance Zapateado.
