Help us release our first ever studio album and travel to New York to perform at the 2012 LAMC, Latin Alternative Music Conference, this July!!!

Your contribution will cover the costs of:

  • CD Production (record, mix, master, album design, press & print)
  • Airfare & transportation to travel and perform at the 2012 LAMC (Latin Alternative Music Conference) in New York City

We are really excited to release our first studio album and to perform at this years LAMC, the largest gathering of Latinos in entertainment from around the world! Help us finish our CD so that we can take it with us to share at the LAMC.

We are a musical project that uses song, poetry, and dance to cultivate folklore, build community, and advocate for the liberation of all people. Our music mixes traditional son jarocho with hip hop and tribal beats, sounds of the afro-carribean marimbol and cajon, and lyrics in spanglish and english that tell our stories of life in the colorful-world of Los Angeles. 

Our music is inspired by an old african proverb "if you can walk, you can dance and if you can talk you can sing."  Our intention in using and sharing the music is to spread a message of social change, awareness, consciousness, equality and love and through doing so also inspire others to find their voice and tell their story; to be the change in their world. Now, more than ever, is the time to create and express, evolve and be exactly the way you're supposed to be.

Help us be the change & share our music!

Thank you for supporting our music and our journey. With your support we can continue to be the change.

In Solidarity,

Las Cafeteras
