Las Cafeteras and Orkesta Mendoza at South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center

FUNDarte and South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center present globalFEST on the Road: The Golden Age of Latin Music featuring the contemporary Latin sounds of Las Cafeteras and Orkesta Mendoza, on Feb. 24th / 8:00 p.m. at South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center. Join us for an exciting evening of Latin culture as Mexico and Cuba combine musical forces when the infectious indie mambo band Orkesta Mendoza and the Chicano band Las Cafeteras team up for an explosive evening of contemporary Latin sounds. Orkesta Mendoza is a hot new Latin music band from Tucson, Arizona founded by singer and guitarist Sergio Mendoza in 2009. The band uses Latin percussion, accordion, brass, and steel guitars, to create a sound dubbed as “indie mambo” that pays tribute to the Latin Big Bands of the 1950s and 60s, while mixing in such traditional genres as ranchera, bolero, and cumbia, and topping off with punk, funk and indie rock. Las Cafeteras is a Los Angeles based ensemble that tightly and flawlessly weaves Afro-Mexican (son jarocho) influences with hip hop, folk, Native American rhythms, and an assortment of other musical styles. Adopting a sound that transcends national boundaries, Las Cafeteras creates music that inspires social change and encourages cross-cultural understanding.
