Las Cafeteras to Perform at McCoy Theater Jan. 30January 26, 2016, 12:00 AM HST · Updated January 26, 9:04 AM 1 Comment
Las Cafeteras will perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s McCoy Studio Theater on Saturday, Jan. 30, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
With a foundation in traditional Son Jarocho sounds, Las Cafeteras adds 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.
Las Cafeteras began in 2005 as a group of students in El Sereno, Los Angeles, who were inspired to utilize teachings of Son Jarocho as a tool to empower and build autonomy, community and solidarity, while sharing the magic of this folk music from with the public. They’ve since become a favorite at LA community centers, churches, schools, parties, protests, youth conferences and weddings.
