Las Cafeteras, one of LA’s favorite cumbia bands, is returning to the Town for the album release party of A Night in Nepantla.

This “from the LA to the Bay” night includes sets by Neblinas del Pacífico, lyricist Deuce Eclipse, and Mariposas del Alma, both from the Discos Resaca Collective. Expect a night of cumbia and Afro-Latin sounds to dance the night away.

Born and raised East of the Los Angeles River, Las Cafeteras are remixing roots music as modern-day troubadours. They are a sonic explosion of Afro-Mexican rhythms, electronic beats, and powerful rhymes documenting stories of a community seeking to ‘build a world where many worlds fit.’

Biography:

 

Las Cafeteras have taken the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances and have crossed many genres and borders along the way.

Their electric sound & energy has taken them around the world, playing shows from Bonnaroo to the Hollywood Bowl, WOMAD New Zealand to Montreal Jazz, & beyond!

Born and raised East of the Los Angeles River, Las Cafeteras are remixing roots music as modern-day troubadours. They are a sonic explosion of Afro-Mexican rhythms, electronic beats, and powerful rhymes documenting stories of a community seeking to ‘build a world where many worlds fit.’

From Afro-Mexican to Americana, from Soul to Son Jarocho, from Roots to Rock and Hip Hop, Las Cafeteras take folk music to the future.

Las Cafeteras honor the past by using electrifying traditional instrumentation like the 8 string Jarana, 4 string Requinto, Quijada (donkey jawbone) and Tarima (a wooden platform). Las Cafeteras sing in 5 distinct languages, English, Spanish, Spanglish, Love and Justice … and they believe everyone understands at least one of those languages.

They’ve performed in the good company of Mexican icons Café Tacuba, Natalia LaFourcade, Lila Downs, Gypsy Kings, Colombian superstar Juanes, Hip Hop artist Common, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli and Los Lobos, performing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and many more.
