Family Art Day: Las Cafeteras
¡Viva La Música! ¡Viva La Cultura!
Visiting Artist Las Cafeteras engages local youth in an exciting celebration of Mexican-American culture through lively songs, powerful story-sharing and inspiring messages! With love as their first language and accompanied by traditional instruments, Las Cafeteras will invite audience members of all ages to share the stories of their own cultures and communities with dancing and sing-alongs in English, Spanish and Spanglish! We will learn about traditional Son Jarocho instruments like the jarana, requinto, quijada (donkey jawbone) and tarima (a wooden platform) and groove to a remix of sounds from rock to hip-hop to rancheras. Lunch will be provided!
