Las Cafeteras seamlessly fuse traditional Afro-Mexican music from Veracruz, modern rhythms, and lyrically rich storytelling to create a fresh Urban Folk sound from the streets of East Los Angeles. A remix of traditional Son Jarocho sounds, they add Afro-Caribbean marimbol and cajón, poetry in English and Spanglish, and eclectic instrumentation to deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice.
All performances are free and open to the public. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend that your entire party arrive early.
The entrance for performances is on Broadway between 62nd & 63rd Streets and is equipped with automatic doors. There are designated wheelchair and companion seats for performances.
Once the venue reaches capacity, a line will form outside. Guests who are unable to stand in line due to a disability are welcome to contact us to arrange for an accommodation.
