Over the last decade, globalFEST has become one of the most dynamic global music platforms in North America, growing from an acclaimed festival into a catalytic non-profit service organization for curators, artists, and the performing arts field. Through its work, globalFEST encourages networking and cultural diplomacy; deepens cultural understanding among its constituents; builds audiences for international music and creates new opportunities for artists leading to a more robust and sustainable ecosystem for world music in the United States. globalFEST will bring Las Cafeteras and Orkesta Mendoza to Warehouse Live for a night of infectious Latin style music. Las Cafeteras are children of immigrants who are remixing roots music and telling modern day stories with what LA Times has called a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock…Live, they’re magnetic.” NPR describes Orkesta Mendoza as “a gorgeous, high-energy combination of mambo, cumbia, psych and rock.”
