Las Cafeteras is all about fusion. Based in LA, this eclectic band mixes Afro-Mexican, hip-hop, folk and first nations musical styles into a frenetic celebration that pulls people to their feet. Band member Hector Flores sees their music as a metaphor for how the world should be. He wears his Mexican heritage proudly, calling for more understanding and tolerance through music and food, spreading his message of social justice across musical and physical borders. In this episode of Streets of Your Town podcast, I speak to Hector straight after the band’s electric performance at Adelaide’s world music festival, WOMADelaide.
