Las Cafeteras w/ Beats y Bateria presented by Thalia Hall, Sound Culture...

  • Thalia Hall

As part of The National Museum of Mexican Art's Del Corazón performing arts series.

Las Cafeteras are immigrant children remixing roots music, telling modern day stories with what LA Times has called a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock … Live, they’re magnetic.” 

The band is taking the music scene by storm with infectious live performances that cross musical borders. They’ve played with bands such as folk/indie favorites Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Mexican icons Cafe Tacuba, Colombian superstar Juanes, L.A. legends Ozomatli, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and most recently with Talib Kweli.

Beats y Batería
How do classic rhumbas, 100 year old folk tunes, and ancient rhythms fit in the percussive electronic music of today? Come find Beats y Bateria: a collaboration of Havana-born, Chicago-based DJ/Producer AfroQbano, Moldovan-born fado jazz singer Ana Munteanu, multi instrumentalist Patrick Donley and global beat drummer Daniel Crane. The four members come from different musical homes but what they do together is set a mood of celebration and nostalgia under the umbrella of global dance music. 

$15 (limited adv), $18 / $20 / Age 17 And Up
