“Uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock… Live, they’re magnetic.”
Los Angeles Times

“One of the leading bands in the vibrant Chicano roots scene” (Boston Globe), this East Los Angeles band has gained worldwide acclaim for their joyous, multifaceted blend of the folkloric son jarocho music of Veracruz with hip hop, rock and rancheras, zapateado dance and incisive social consciousness. Las Cafeteras has taken the music scene by storm with their spirited live shows and has performed with Lila Downs, Colombian superstar Juanes, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli, folk/indie favorites Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and Talib Kweli. Using music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities, Las Cafeteras is creating “a world where many worlds fit.”
