Happy Holidays, Everyone!

It’s crazy to think that we’re just about at the end of the year! We’re pretty sure that for most of us it’s been a wild ride and often we’re just barely hangin’ on…but we’re here and now is the time to celebrate! So it’s a good thing that PIÑA is back celebrating New Year’s Eve at El Dorado DTLA for our third straight year, presenting:

saturday december 14 | las cafeteras live

Big Announcement! La Junta have been added to Saturday December 14th’s Las Cafeteras concert at DTLA’s Regent Theater. It’ll be an amazing ‘reunion’ with the band since our last official collaborative events happened way back in 2015 with a mini Northern California tour and remix EP. Degruvme, Yukicito and yours truly will be spinning sets before, between and after the bands’ live sets. The evening also features a live performance by San Cha. End the year (and the decade) with a show that you won’t soon forget!

ABOUT LAS CAFETERAS
Las Cafeteras have taken the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances and have crossed-genre and musical borders, playing with bands such as Mexican icons Caifanes, Lila Downs, Colombian superstar Juanes, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli, folk/indie favorites Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and most recently with Talib Kweli.

Born and raised east of the Los Angeles river, Las Cafeteras are remixing roots music and telling modern day stories. Las Cafeteras create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and positive message. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. Using traditional Son Jarocho instruments like the jarana, requinto, quijada (donkey jawbone) and tarima (a wooden platform), Las Cafeteras sing in English, Spanish, and Spanglish and add a remix of sounds, from rock to hip-hop to rancheras. Las Cafeteras use music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities, and create ‘a world where many worlds fit’.

LA Times described Las Cafeteras as “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock … live, they’re magnetic.”
