The New Golden Age of Latin Music is being created here in the United States. The Mexican-American communities of AZ and CA are merging styles of music that reflect the changing borders and shared cultural identities. Las Cafeteras and Flor de Toloache are two exciting bands forging inspired new paths for the fabled Latin sound.

 

Alternative Chicano band Las Cafeteras recreates traditional Afro-Caribbean Son Jarocho music in a wildly vibrant style. GRAMMY®-nominated Mariachi Flor de Toloache is the first all-female mariachi group who recently toured with Dan Auerbach’s band The Arcs.
