Description

Las Cafeteras wearing facepaint and masks


Hasta La Muerte is an enthralling new production rooted in the Indigenous Mexican practice of celebrating life and death, universally known as Día de Los Muertos. In honoring the ancestors who came before us, Hasta La Muerte is a passionate, multi-dimensional performance filled with Zapateado, dance, song, altares y flores.



Hasta La Muerte will feature original and new works from Las Cafeteras, as well as inspired interpretations of traditional folk songs, such as “La Llorona,” “La Bruja,” “La Morena.” With a traditional altar on stage, alongside mesmerizing beauty of folkloric choreography, the Hasta La Muerte show will be a night of transcendent color and sound, a moving invitation to travel through time, rhythm, and memory.


“Las Cafeteras is a uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia, androck...live, they’re magnetic.” - L.A. Times


Las Cafeteras is a vibrant musical fusion with a sound all their own. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice in Los Angeles. With an infectious live performance featuring a remix of sound - from rock to hip-hop to rancheras - Las Cafeteras uses English, Spanish and Spanglish lyrics to cross musical genre borders and build bridges between different cultures.
