Omaha Performing Arts Las Cafeteras Holland Performing Arts Center Specials

Program Book - English 
Libro de programas - Español 

Born and raised east of the Los Angeles river, Las Cafeteras’ 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 use music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities and create “a world where many worlds fit”. 

LA Times described Las Cafeteras as “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock … live, they’re magnetic.”  

Las Cafeteras will also be leading a free community workshop as part of Voices AMPLIFIED! Learn more.

Las Cafeteras have taken the music scene by storm with their spirited live performances that have crossed genres and musical borders. Their electric sound & energy has taken them around the world playing shows from the Bonnaroo to the Hollywood Bowl, WOMAD New Zealand to Montreal Jazz, & beyond; with Mexican icons Caifanes, Lila Downs, Colombian superstar Juanes, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli, folk/indie favorites Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and Talib Kweli.

Las Cafeteras son hijos de inmigrantes quienes están remezclando música tradicional mientras que dan vida y voz a cuentos del presente y el pasado. Lo que LA Times ha llamado un, “‘mishmash’ único de punk, hip-hop, latidos, cumbia y rock.”  

Las Cafeteras crean una fusión musical vibrante con un sonido único de Los Ángeles. Llevan en su música un mensaje positivo, una combinación de estilos y fuentes que ofrecen letras con conciencia social tanto en Inglés como en Español. Sus ritmos vibrantes y rimas afro-mexicanas documentan las historias de una comunidad que busca amor y lucha por la justicia en la jungla de cemento de Los Ángeles. 

Viaje al pasado y escucha el futuro de las Américas durante una sola presentación.
