The New Golden Age of Latin Music is being shaped right here in North America! globalFEST presents two of today’s most exciting bands, Orkesta Mendoza and Las Cafeteras, whose merging styles reflect the changing borders and shared cultural identities between Mexico and the U.S. The infectious indie mambo band Orkesta Mendoza is a mix of Latin styles, like cumbia, merengue and ranchera, through a psychedelic mambo and post-punk prism. Alternative Chicano band Las Cafeteras recreates traditional Afro-Caribbean Son Jarocho music in a wildly vibrant style with socially conscious messages in English and Spanglish. Together they offer an inspired evening of Latin sound that’s sure to delight music lovers from all backgrounds. Tickets are available online at zeiterion.org, by phone at 508-994-2900, or in person at The Zeiterion Box Office.
