Duke University - Sarah P. Duke Gardens presents
Music in the Gardens: Las Cafeteras
- $10; $5 Duke students and employees; free for children 12 and under
In 2005, a group of East Los Angeles students became friends and bandmates while studying son jarocho, a Mexican musical melting pot of indigenous, African, and Spanish elements that gave the world "La Bamba." Now, as Las Cafeteras, those students have modernized the centuries-old style, updating its folk music roots with timely questions about immigration, integration, and equality. On 2017's Tastes Like LA, they paired a subversive version of "This Land is Your Land" with "If I Was President," a generation's powerful declaration of its priorities -- access to good education, clean water, and the freedom to live in peace.
