    The 40th Street Summer SeriespresentsLas Cafeteras with Philadelphia Women's Slavic EnsembleBorn and raised east of the Los Angeles River, Las Cafeteras are remixing roots music and telling modern day stories. Las Cafeteras create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and positive message. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. Using traditional Son Jarocho instruments like the jarana, requinto, quijada (donkey jawbone) and tarima (a wooden platform), Las Cafeteras sing in English, Spanish, and Spanglish and add a remix of sounds, from rock to hip-hop to rancheras. Las Cafeteras use music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities, and create ‘a world where many worlds fit.’ Hear Las Cafeteras on Spotify

    Philadelphia Women's Slavic Ensemble (PWSE) is a fun community choir in West Philly, welcoming singers both new and seasoned. We snack, drink wine, and loudly sing the wonderful folk music of Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia.. and whatever else we find arrangements for! Hear Philadelphia Women's Slavic Ensemble on Soundcloud
