Las Cafeteras have taken the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances and have crossed-genre and musical borders, collaborating with folk/indie bands, Mexican and Columbian super groups, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and most recently with Talib Kweli. Born and raised east of the Los Angeles river, Las Cafeteras are remixing roots music and telling modern day stories. Las Cafeteras create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and positive message. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles.
