“One of the leading bands in the vibrant Chicano roots scene” (Boston Globe), this vibrant six-piece band from Los Angeles has gained worldwide acclaim for their joyous, multi-faceted blend of the folkloric Son Jarocho music of Veracruz with hip-hop, zapateado dance, and incisive social consciousness.
Named in honor of the Eastside Café, the East L.A. community space where the members first came together to take Son Jarocho classes, Las Cafeteras have built a global profile and rabid fan base through tireless touring and an infectious live show that celebrates the mix of cultural influences they’ve absorbed as second-generation Americans and citizens of the world.
They’ve released a trio of audacious albums including their latest, 2017’s Tastes Like L.A., utilizing traditional Son Jarocho instruments and multilingual lyrics of love, loss, and survival, bringing light to issues of Civil Rights, migrant workers, and the DREAM Act.
The band has shared the stage with artists including Lila Downs, Juanes, Ozomatli, Caifanes, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and makes its SFJAZZ debut with these performances.
- SFJAZZ Center is located at 201 Franklin St. (at the corner of Franklin and Fell streets) in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood.
