In 2005, rooted in community & tradition, a group of students learning Son Jarocho music became known as ‘Los Cafeteros,’ named after the Eastside Cafe community center in East Los Angeles that they helped found. They soon changed their name to Las Cafeteras to honor the feminine spirit of the group. Over the years, Las Cafeteras has developed a genre-bending sound & electric live performance with the purpose of sharing the hidden stories of migrant life in Los Angeles. Las Cafeteras were inspired not only from Mexican music, but from rock, reggae, hip-hop and Motown. Through music, Las Cafeteras is trying to help build ‘a world where many worlds fit.’ While in the Wood River Valley, Las Cafeteras will spend four days visiting over 2000 students with musical performances that will present their music and their message of inclusivity.
