Las Cafeteras

UNCW Presents
Kenan Auditorium
Saturday, Apr 9, 2022 at 7:30 PM (ET)

An infectious live performance that challenges genre and musical borders

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 between different cultures and communities, creating ‘a world where many worlds fit.’ Born and raised east of the Los Angeles River, Las Cafeteras remix roots music and deliver inspiring lyrics to tell modern-day stories of a community seeking love and justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. This program is part of the NEA Big Read Cape Fear.

NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
