Las Cafeteras School Performance

School Performances, Ordway Music Theater

Approximate Run-time: 50-60 min

Las Cafeteras combines the vibrant energy of Son Jarocho music with an edgy LA sound. Their pounding Afro-Mexican rhythms, stomping zapateado dancing, and uplifting verses tell stories of everyday people fighting for justice and respect. A re-mix of the traditional, Las Cafeteras adds Afro-Carribean marimbol, spoken word, and lyrics in English & Spanglish to Jarocho instruments like jarana & requinto guitars, donkey jaw-bone, and the tarima (stomp box).

$3.50/ticket + Bus Reimbursement
