Summer may be unofficially over but here in Los Angeles we are having a heat wave just in time to kick off Latino Heritage Month. Kicking off the celebrations and hopefully the conversations, are East LA locals Las Cafeteras, who will be celebrating the release of their CD “It’s Time”.
Joining las Cafeteras tonight at the Boyle Hieghts Farmer’s Market are Los Angeles based Bomba group Atabey and Chicano Batman.
As a newcomer to LA I’m not that familiar with las Cafeteras besides hearing them on NPR’s Alt.Latino and Remezcla. And this Rican definitely wants to see what’s up with Bomba in East Los (yes I will admit to being a little skeptical).
The party jumps off tonight at 6 at Mariachi Plaza, 1831 E 1st St., Los Angeles.
I’ll be livetweeting from @VivirLatino and @Mamitamala.
