AUGUST 1 – LAS CAFETERAS
Las Cafeteras sprouted in 2006 as students who enjoyed Son Jarocho classes & decided to share the magic of this folk music from Southern Veracruz with the public. Las Cafeteras has opened for groups including Ozomatli, Zack de la Rocha (of Rage Against the Machine), La Santa Cecilia, Fool’s Gold, Quetzal & more. Las Cafeteras combines the vibrant energy of Son Jarocho music with an edgy LA-alternative sound & political message. Their pounding Afro-Mexican rhythms, stomping zapateado dancing, and uplifting lyrics tell stories of everyday people.
