Cafe Cultura is more than just a regular show: it's an all-ages, community gathering full of life where, through the exchange of music, art, film, homemade food, local crafts, kids activities and more, we hope to foster connections and awareness while reaching our community's potential together.
We're proud to be a host for Son Altepee on their 1st ever US tour. Travelling from Acayucan, Mexico, in the state of Veracruz, Son Altepee are young ambassadors of the musical style of Son Jarocho and active organizers who see, "string music as a tool of social consciousness in a shared environment."
Proceeds from the donation will go towards Colectivo Altepee's community work in Mexico.
Additional proceeds go towards Fandango Tejas to support outreach and community building around Son Jarocho locally.
