School Day Performance for K-12 Students

Born and raised east of Los Angeles, the six-piece Mexican-American Las Cafeteras band is remixing roots music and telling modern-day Chicano/a stories. The group creates a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and positive message, a mix-and-match of styles and sources that deliver socially conscious lyrics in both English and Spanish. Their wildly vibrant Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes document stories of a community looking for love and fighting for justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles.

Pre-and post-show workshops offered.

Students will create a devised performance using music, movement, poetry or storytelling. Inspired by the work of Las Cafeteras, and the group’s focus on the stories of immigrants, women, and people of color, students will develop their own artistic work to educate, engage, and motivate their peers to enact positive change in their communities. Through sharing their own stories, students will engage in conversations about culture, empowerment, justice, and inclusiveness. This workshop makes connections to English Language Arts, Current Events, World and American History, Music Education, and Physical Education.
