Win FREE Tickets to Las Cafeteras @ Sanctuary for Independent Media on Sunday

Las Cafeteras
Las Cafeteras

LA Weekly honored them with the Best Latin Alternative Band award in 2013.

National Public Radio hailed their music as “creative, socially conscious, it’s perfect.”

The BBC called it “urgent, relevant music.”

Born in the streets of Los Angeles, Las Cafeteras are immigrant children who are remixing roots music and telling modern day stories with what The Los Angeles Times has called a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock … Live, they’re magnetic.”

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

Now Las Cafeteras are slated to make their Nippertown debut as they take the stage at the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy at 7pm on Sunday (October 5). Admission is $15.

    Ahh, interesting. I would love to check out some new music in a venue I have yet to get to.

  2. Grace Nichols says

    Well, thanks. I sure hope I get some tickets. I am depressed by lack of funding for epidemics, asthma, climate change and dearth of music in my life, not in that order. Have a great event, regardless.

    Give them to Grace.
