Longtime followers of this blog may recall us promoting our amazing musical homies Las Cafeteras over the past few years. Since then they’ve contintued to bring their liberating music, combining tradtional Son Jarocho with alternative sounds of L.A. to many new ears. Checkout their version of the Son Jarocho classic La Bamba.
Straight out of East L.A. they are now getting their bags packed to travel to the 2012 Latin Alternative Music Conference in New York this summer. All the while they are have been working hard in the studio blending their pounding afro-mexican rhthyms and uplifiting lyrics into their first album. In order to fund their trip to NYC and to finish their debut CD they started a Kick Starter fund and they are just a few hundred dollars short of reaching their goal of $11,000.
TAKE A MINUTE TO WATCH THEIR VIDEO and if you feel as half as inspired as we do by their project back them like we all have.
