Arts Friday’s Angela Stretch talked to Denise Carlos from ‘Las Cafeteras’ about their political perspectives, identity and the power of music.

Las Cafeteras are a band of Mexican–Americans living in East LA and as the LA times described them, are “a uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock.”

By blending traditional music with hip hop and punk they have kept two traditions alive-music from their homeland, and the punk and hip hop legacy of political protest. Catch them live at WOMADelaide in March.
