las cafeteras


Rooted in Son Jarocho, Las Cafeteras seamlessly fuse traditional Afro-Caribbean music from Veracruz, Mexico with modern rhythms and lyrically rich storytelling to create a new Urban Folk sound from the streets of East Los Angeles.

Las Cafeterashave taken the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances and have crossed-genre and musical borders, playing with bands such as Mexican iconsCaifanes, Lila Downs, Colombian superstar Juanes, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli,folk/indie favorites Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and most recently with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. The sound of Las Cafeteras is brought to life by the eclectic instrumentation used, which include jarana’s, requinto, a donkey jawbone, a West African bass instrument called theMarimbol, cajón, and a wooden platform called the Tarima used to dance Zapateado.
