Day of the Dead or Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated November 1st and 2nd. The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and helping support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awaken and celebrate with them. All year we miss our loved ones on the other side but on these 2 days with candles burning and the smell of marigolds mixed with cinnamon and sugar in the background, we get to eat drink and dance with them. It is traditional to create altars in your home filled with favorite foods, drinks, trinkets and pictures of your loved ones; all as a form of reverence.
For the 3rd year in a row join Super Sonido on Sunday, November 1 at 4pm for a sonic altar dedicated to all our loved ones on the other side. You’ll experience an hour filled with nostalgia love and celebration of our ancestors. You’ll hear songs from La Santa Cecilia, Mexicats, Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas and Biomigrant among others. These won’t be sad songs, these songs are a ceremony, all meant to help you call out to your loved ones and invite them to dance with you one more time.
