Las Cafeteras seamlessly fuse traditional Afro-Mexican music with modern rhythms and rich storytelling to create a fresh urban folk sound from the streets of East Los Angeles. Their infectious sound is brought to life by a host of eclectic traditional instruments. Based in traditional Son Jarocho sounds, their inspiring lyrics, sung in English, Spanish and Spanglish, reflect a story that is at once uniquely East LA, yet universal in its appeal. This program is supported, in part, with funds provided by the Western States Arts Federation. For more information, visit www.artslasvegas.org or call 702-229-ARTS (2787).
