globalFEST On the Road

Kingsbury Hall

The New Golden Age of Latin Music

The New Golden Age of Latin Music is happening now, through emerging styles that reflect the changing borders and shared cultural identities between Mexico and the United States. This year’s globalFEST On the Road bands, Orkesta Mendoza and Las Cafeteras, are two of today’s most exciting bands, forging inspired new paths for the fabled Latin sound. The infectious indie mambo band Orkesta Mendoza mixes 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. Alternative Chicano band Las Cafeteras recreates traditional Afro-Caribbean Son Jarocho music in a wildy vibrant style, telling stories of a community that is looking for love and fighting for justice in the concrete jungle of East LA.
