UNCSA Presents Las Cafeteras

  • Stevens Center - UNC School of the Arts 405 West 4th Street Winston-Salem, NC, 27101 United States (map)

UNCSA Presents: The American Music Series, six great concerts at the Stevens Center this summer. This concert features the vibrant East L.A. musical group, Las Cafeteras, known for their remixes of roots music that tell modern-day stories. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms and rhymes deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice. Using traditional Son Jarocho instruments like the jarana, requinto, quijada (donkey jawbone) and tarima (a wooden platform), Las Cafeteras sing in English, Spanish, and Spanglish, and add a remix of sounds from rock to hip-hop to rancheras. Las Cafeteras use music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities, and create “a world where many worlds fit.” The L.A. Times described them as a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock … live, they’re magnetic.”
