Las Cafeteras is a music ensemble that combines the vibrant energy of Son Jarocho music with an edgy LA-alternative sound & political message. Their pounding Afro-Mexican rhythms, stomping zapateado dancing, & uplifting lyrics tell stories of everyday people searching for love & fighting for justice in the concrete jungle. The group is comprised of Annette Torres, Daniel French, David Flores, Denise Carlos, Hector Flores, Jose Cano, y Leah Gallegos. In 2009 they perform a rendition of the popular folk song, “La Bamba” at the Tia Chucha bookstore. Their version is infused with contemporary lyrics that give it relevance to the Latino experience in the United States.
