Day of the Dead Concert: Las Cafeteras
Latino Arts, Inc. is thrilled to have musicians returning to our stage for the 2021-2022 season! We can't think of a better way to welcome the return of live music than with a concert featuring Las Cafeteras!
Las Cafeteras have taken the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances and have crossed genre and musical borders. Their electric sound & energy has taken them around the world playing shows from the Bonnaroo to the Hollywood Bowl, WOMAD New Zealand to Montreal Jazz, & beyond!
Las Cafeteras are remixing roots music and telling modern day stories, creating a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and positive message. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice. 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 add a remix of sounds, from rock to hip-hop to rancheras.
* This Special Day of the Dead concert will feature the students of the Latino Arts Strings Program!
