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.”

Conjunto Bruja is a Latin-mideast folk ensemble of Baltimore chingonas on cajón, guitar, charango, Irani setar, and ranchera-inspired vocals. Through their music, las Brujas explore folk traditions and verses from around Latin America and the Middle East. Their diverse cultural backgrounds influence the "corazón" of their music, bridging dynamic sounds from Bolivia, Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, and Iran.
