Join us for a special community conversation with acclaimed performing artist, Las Cafeteras. Learn about the band’s rich history of community work and passion surrounding heritage. Presented by the LBC Latino Advisory Council (LAC), The Sounds of Solidarity will include a panel discussion with the band members, small group discussions in English and Spanish facilitated by the LAC, and a Q&A session. Las Cafeteras will perform a brief piece of music during the evening.
Participants will examine guiding questions to reflect on for themselves and for our community as we explore Sonoma County community members’ experiences and thoughts.
Las Cafeteras are Native and migrant children who are remixing roots music and telling modern day stories with what the LA Times has called a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia, and rock.”
Las Cafeteras own a genre-bending sound that grows from son jarocho with four versatile vocalists infusing rich lyrics with the hidden stories of migrant life in Los Angeles. You will witness a celebration of sounds ranging from Afro-Mexican to Americana, from the Caribbean to California, from traditional to electric, from English to Spanish with all the emotions in between.
A joint presentation with the Green Music Center.
