Born and raised east of the Los Angeles River, Las Cafeteras remix roots music, telling modern-day stories of Latino and immigrant lives. Using traditional Son Jarocho instruments like the jarana, requinto, quijada (donkey jawbone) and tarima (a wooden platform), Las Cafeteras sing in English, Spanish, and Spanglish and meld styles, from rock to hip-hop to rancheras. Las Cafeteras use music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities, to create “a world where many worlds fit”.
With over 15 years of collective experience in education, organizing, curriculum development, social work, movement building, health and wellness, musical performance and theater, Las Cafeteras offer workshops, training, and residencies in effort to engage a variety of audiences. The group combines history, humor, critical thought and audience participation, in a fun and unique way.
A $1 historic preservation fee will be added to each ticket to help maintain The Sheldon for future generations.
