The LA-based chicano band, Las Cafeteras, performs free at the National Museum of the American Indian on Sunday, October 30th as part of the Mexican Dia de Los Muertos festival, featuring other performances, demos and artists. The Smithsonian Latino Center hosts the weekend-long festival.
Las Cafeteras will play at the museum’s Potomac Atrium at 3:30pm.
Las Cafeteras mix a variety of musical styles, new and old, for a unique blend of sounds and storytelling. Notably son jarocho, a folk music style from Veracruz, Mexico.
Watch them perform live at Seattle’s KEXP, including their infectious take on “La Bamba Rebelde”. And yes, that is a giant mandible doubling as a musical instrument!
The band members are Denise Carlos, Leah Gallegos, Daniel French, David Flores, Hector Flores and Jose Cano.
