East Los Angeles’ Las Cafeteras just released their third album, A Night In Nepantla, featuring a synth-laden fusion of traditional Mexican folk, Afro-Colombian beats, and electronic dance. Come down to the Railyard to dance, dance, dance!
For A Night, Las Cafeteras enlists an array of celebrated collaborators and producers to masterfully share their stories of longing and love while putting the spotlight on pressing issues affecting their communities. The album features Las Cafeteras alongside David Garza (Fiona Apple), Moises Baquero (Los Abandoned), Sergio Mendoza (Natalia LaFourcade, Calexico, Mexican Institute of Sound) and LA-based DJ/Producer David Cardena.
Garnering global acclaim throughout their electrifying live performances across more than 40 states and accolades from NPR, Latino USA, GRAMMY.com, PBS, LA Times, and Democracy Now!, Las Cafeteras’ original members Hector Flores, Denise Carlos, and Jose Cano lock arms and hearts on A Night In Nepantla by inviting audiences to explore the concept of "Nepantla," a Nahuatl word meaning "in-between" or "in the middle." Las Cafeteras dives into themes of cultural hybridity and identity from the writings of Gloria Anzaldúa and her book, The Borderlands (LINK). “Nepantla” serves as a metaphor for the lived experiences of people who exist at the intersections of multiple, often-conflicting cultural, ethnic, and social identities.
Frontman and singer Hector Flores, says, “As a band, we deeply resonate with the land of ‘Nepantla’ and feel that we live in the middle of multiple worlds, sounds and identities, and this album brings people together to sonically join us in our joy, grief, struggle, and liberation in Nepantla.”
Divino hails from Espanola, NM and was established in 2013 by Fernando Romero and Andrea Lucero. Divino is a product of traditional New Mexican Music and has been known to experiment with different genres of music.  They joined to bring back traditional New Mexican Music and cultural roots to the community. Divino has released four albums and have received numerous awards from the NMHMA and Los 15 Grandes de Nuevo Mexico.
