The Los Angeles Times describes Las Cafeteras as a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia, and rock…live, they’re magnetic.”

 

El periódico Los Angeles Times describe a Las Cafeteras como una “mezcla única de la música punk, hip-hop, ritmo, cumbia y rock… En vivo, son magnéticos.”

Born and raised east of Los Angeles, the six-piece band is remixing roots music and telling modern-day stories. They create 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.

Nacidos y criados al este de Los Ángeles, la banda mexicana-estadounidense de seis miembros está re mezclando música de sus raíces y contando cuentos chicanos contemporáneos. Crean una fusión musical vibrante con un sonido único de East LA y un mensaje positivo, una combinación de estilos y fuentes que ofrecen letras con conciencia social tanto en inglés como en español. Sus vibrantes ritmos y rimas afro-mexicanas documentan las historias de una comunidad que busca amor y lucha por la justicia en la jungla de cemento de Los Ángeles.

Post-Show Community Dialogue: Action Steps for Immigration Justice

Las Cafeteras, U-M School of Public Health Clinical Assistant Professor Bill Lopez, and students will share action steps that audience members can take to get involved with immigration justice in the Southeast Michigan community. Must have performance ticket to attend.
