Las Cafeteras create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and a community-focused political message. Their Afro Mexican rhythms, zapateado, and inspiring lyrics tell stories of a community looking for love and fighting for justice. A remix of traditional Son Jarocho sounds, Las Cafeteras add Afro Caribbean marimbol and cajón, poetry in English and Spanglish, and instruments like jarana, requinto, a donkey jawbone, and a wooden platform called the tarima.
