Las Cafeteras Come to Troy

The east Los Angeles band Las Cafeteras performs in Troy, N.Y., on Sunday, October 5, at 7 p.m., at The Sanctuary for Independent Media, 3361 Sixth Avenue. Las Cafeteras create a vibrant musical fusion with a community-focused political message. Their Afro-Mexican rhythms, zapateado and inspiring lyrics tell stories of a community looking for love and fighting for justice. Their remix of traditional Son Jarocho sounds adds Afro-Caribbean marimbol and cajón, poetry and instruments like jarana, requinto, a donkey jawbone and a wooden platform called the Tarima. Admission is $15; tickets for the all-ages show are available at brownpapertickets.com. Visit mediasanctuary.org or call 518-272-2390 for directions and more information.
