Two exciting bands. One hot, fun Latin night.
globalFEST, a top producer of global music, brings Orkesta Mendoza and Las Cafeteras -- two of today’s most exciting bands, forging inspired new paths for the fabled Latin sound.
The infectious indie mambo band Orkesta Mendoza mix a multitude of Latin styles like cumbia, merengue and ranchera through a psychedelic mambo and post-punk prism, creating a truly one-of-a-kind sound. Bandleader, keyboardist, guitarist and vocalist Sergio Mendoza leads a powerhouse band fronted by vocalist and dancer Salvador Duran, and framed by guitar, keyboard, percussion, drums and brass.
Las Cafeteras fuses Afro-Mexican, hip hop, folk, and native American styles into a vibe all their own. They recreate traditional Afro-Caribbean Son Jarocho music in a wildy vibrant style. Their rousing socially conscious messages, in English and Spanglish, tell stories of a community that is looking for love and fighting for justice in the concrete jungle of East LA. The band is accompanied by instruments including jarana and requinto guitars, a donkey jawbone and a tarima, a wooden platform for dancing.
