CONCERT: Las Cafeteras

Friday, October 21, 2022 - 7:30 PM

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 that document 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 eight-string Jarana, four-string Requinto, Quijada (donkey jawbone) and Tarima (a wooden platform). Las Cafeteras sing in five distinct languages, English, Spanish, Spanglish, Love and Justice…and they believe everyone understands at least one of those languages.

Part of SVMoA’s Community Celebration “Honoring Traditions: Día de los Muertos,” made possible in part through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy demands wisdom.

Nacidas y criadas al este del río Los Ángeles, Las Cafeteras están remezclando música de raíces como trovadores modernos. Son una explosión sonora de ritmos afromexicanos, ritmos electrónicos y rimas poderosas que documentan historias de una comunidad que busca “construir un mundo donde quepan muchos mundos”.

De afromexicano a americana, de soul a son jarocho, de raíces a rock y hip hop, Las Cafeteras llevan la música folclórica al futuro. Las Cafeteras honran el pasado utilizando instrumentación tradicional electrizante como la Jarana de ocho cuerdas, el Requinto de cuatro cuerdas, Quijada (quijada de burro) y Tarima (una plataforma de madera). Las Cafeteras cantan en cinco idiomas distintos, inglés, español, spanglish, amor y justicia… y creen que todos entienden al menos uno de esos idiomas.

El tiempo de Las Cafeteras en Wood River Valley también es parte de la celebración comunitaria del Museo “Honrar las tradiciones: Día de los Muertos”, que fue posible en parte gracias a una importante subvención del National Endowment for the Humanities: La democracia exige sabiduría.

El concierto y la residencia de Las Cafeteras cuentan con el apoyo de una subvención de la Asociación de Profesionales de las Artes Escénicas, posible gracias al apoyo de la Fundación Andrew W. Mellon.

El financiamiento adicional para la Serie de Artes Escénicas y Residencia de SVMoA proviene de la Comisión de Artes de Idaho, WESTAF (Federación de Artes de los Estados Occidentales) y el Fondo Nacional para las Artes; Carolyn y John Lloyd; Bex Wilkinson y la Fundación Marshall Frankel; Scott Miley y Jane Rosen; Robin Leavitt y Terry Friedlander; Joyce Friedman en memoria de Norman Friedman; Mesón y habitaciones del río de madera.
