Las Cafeteras create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and a community-focused political message. Their Afro Mexican rhythms, zapateado, and inspiring lyrics tell stories of a community looking for love and fighting for justice. A remix of traditional Son Jarocho sounds, Las Cafeteras add Afro Caribbean marimbol and cajón, poetry in English and Spanglish, and instruments like jarana, requinto, a donkey jawbone, and a wooden platform called the tarima.
The special event is part of the Elaine and Jerome Rosenfeld Concerts in the Courtyard at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Tucked inside the Calderwood Courtyard, this season-long series showcases the hottest, most diverse acts from Boston and around the globe.
