Approximate Run-time: 55 min
The self-described “immigrant children” of Las Cafeteras remix roots music and tell modern day stories with what the LA Times calls a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia, and rock.” The band has stormed the music world with its international instrumentation, crossing genres and musical borders with their infectious live performances.
These magnetic Afro-Mexican storytellers from East L.A. blend deeply emotional lyrics with a socially conscious message that’s inspired by the communities in which they live.
Local musicians, Alma Andina, will be the opening act and we encourage everyone to join us on the dance floor!

6:30pm | Marzitelli Foyer
Prior to each World Music & Dance Series performance, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about that evening’s performance genre(s) and topics through lecture, dialogue, and demonstration of a particular art form. The Ordway Extra presenters are primarily Twin Cities-based and have expertise on the evening’s topics, connecting the Main Stage touring performance to the local art scene. The intention of the Extra is not only to educate audiences, but also to engage and recognize local scholars and artists whose work parallels that of the invited national and international performances.
