Las Cafeteras to Perform at Herrick Chapel on November 20

November 12, 2021

As part of the Grinnell College public events concert series, Las Cafeteras will perform at Herrick Chapel on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 7p.m. Las Cafeteras’ are known for fusing Afro-Mexican (son jarocho), hip hop, folk, Native American & more styles. They use their performances to inspire social change. 

Like modern-day Woody Guthries, Las Cafeteras sing socially charged stories supported by a live performance that combines dance and dialogue. With their infectious and uplifting spirit, Las Cafeteras demonstrates that while the struggle for peace, justice and equality is a serious matter, it doesn’t mean that you can't have a good time along the way. If anything, the joy they bring to listeners offers an inspirational soundtrack for the march towards a better future. If Las Cafeteras have their way, it will be a journey overflowing with dance, song and smiles.

Minors under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by an adult. The college also welcomes the presence of minors at all age-appropriate public events and for informal visits, with the understanding that a parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult assumes full responsibility for their child's safety and behavior during such visits or events. In these cases, the college expects that an adult responsible for the visiting child takes measures to ensure the child's safety and sees that the child complies with directions of college personnel. Grinnell College is not responsible for supervision of minors on campus.
