Las Cafeteras in London : 2 August, 2017

Las Cafeteras in London : 2 August, 2017

Their pounding Afro-Mexican rhythms, stomping zapateado dancing, & uplifting lyrics tell stories of everyday people searching for love & fighting for justice in the concrete jungle. This alt-son group re-mixes traditional sounds, adding Afro-Caribbean marimbol, Native American drum & flute, cajon, hip hop, English & Spanglish to Jarocho instruments like jarana & requinto guitars, donkey jaw-bone, & the tarima (stomp box).

“At a time when the lines between true and false have been insidiously blurred, Las Cafeteras are the real deal. A product and reflection of the diverse, hard-working, politically active neighborhood of East Los Angeles, Las Cafeteras present songs of social consciousness and celebration on their second studio album” Tastes Like L.A..


With their infectious and uplifting spirit, Las Cafeteras demonstrates that while the struggle for peace, justice and equality is a serious matter, it doesn’t mean that you can't have a good time along the way. If anything, the joy they bring to listeners offers an galvanizing soundtrack for the march towards a better future. If Las Cafeteras have their way, it will be a journey overflowing with dance, song and smiles.
