Las Cafeteras+Chicha Libre
Named after the coffee machines that fueled their East Los Angeles beginnings, this seven-piece band updates and politicizes the son jarocho tradition of Veracruz, Mexico. Their version of "La Bamba Rebelde" is a rebel call to a world without borders and "Trabajador Trabajadora" celebrates immigrant worker dignity with a rapping history lesson. Chicha Libre, of course, deliver a brilliant Franco-Brooklyn take on Peru's psychedelic cumbia amazonica. With DJ Sultan Balkanero.
