Huntington Summer Arts Festival: Las Cafeteras
July 12, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
World Music/Mexican Roots& Rock. Las Cafeteras creates a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and a positive message to build bridges among different cultures and communities. Their infectious live performances feature Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice. 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.
Northport Community Band also performs “European Vacation” tonight, 8:30pm, in Northport Village Park. Pre-concert performance (7:45pm) by Mr. Jack Daniel’s Original Silver Cornet Band. Classics from Britain, France, and Russia. Guest conductor Andy Isca leads the band in “O Sole Mio”, featuring Music Director Don Sherman as euphonium soloist. World War I Centennial commemoration.
