Las Cafeteras Honor the Feminine Spirit with a New Song and Video “Mujer Soy” Commemorating Women’s History Month
Just in time for International Women’s Day on March 8th, LA’s favorite musical activist group, Las Cafeteras, drop a fresh new remix and music video titled “MUJER SOY” (I am Woman).
The project was a special collaboration with YUKICITO, member of Los Angeles DJ Crew LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM who remixed “MUJER SOY”Â (I Am Woman) into an upbeat dance track.Â The original tune was written and recorded by Las Cafeteras with traditional instruments to pay homage to the various experiences women face in their households, on the street, and in sweatshops (“maquiladoras” in Spanish) around the world.
“This is a song calling out the injustices done to women, but also highlighting the POWER and resiliency women inherently possess,” affirms Denise Carlos, member of Las Cafeteras.
The music video itself captures a day in the real life of Maryann Aguirre, a young and fierce woman of color from the Eastside of Los Angeles. The video follows her as she faces the daily challenges of work, single motherhood, & the pressure of being a leader in her community, however; she faces those obstacles with hope, resolve, patience, and dignity.
“In a time when women are too often degraded in the club, we’re trying to reclaim the dance floor with this song to celebrate & uplift women,” states Daniel French, member of Las Cafeteras
