Las Cafeteras

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Taking the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances and genre-crossing sound, Las Cafeteras seamlessly fuses traditional Afro-Caribbean music with modern rhythms and lyrically rich storytelling to create a new urban folk sound that reflects the streets of today’s East Los Angeles.

The music of Las Cafeteras is brought to life by an assortment of eclectic instrumentation (jarana, requinto, a donkey jawbone, Marimbol, cajon and a wooden platform called the Tarima, used to dance Zapateado) that creates a contagious sound that has won the band comparisons to Mumford and Sons.

Las Cafeteras has also shared the stage with diverse acts such as Mexican icons Califanes, Colombian superstar, Juanes, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli, indie folk favorite Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and most recently with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.

Special Restrictions: Tickets are: Advance Sales: $25 General, $20 Discount, $12 UHH/HCC Student/Child. At the Door: $30 General, $25 Discount, $17 UHH/HCC Student/Child. Available at the UH Hilo Box Office Tues-Fri 9am - 1pm, 932-7490 or online at arts center.uhh.hawaii.edu
