Las Cafeteras

Ordway Music Theater

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!
