Jose Cano


Jose Cano’s main role in Las Cafeteras is percussion and at times contributes with the flute, requinto, harmonica and shouts out an occasional “yo no creo en fronteras”.  Originally from Oxnard CA, he started playing music in the middle school concert band and has since been involved in a number of bands playing anything from cumbia to rock to norteno music before joining las cafeteras. Biking for commuting, running, boxing, healthy living, community, art and culture are among some of the passions he shares with people. Jose holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from California State University, Los Angeles and currently works as a freelance design engineer and owns his own door and window company.
