Although the ancient holiday is called Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) this tradition which began with the Aztec Civilization and continued in the Americas is, in reality, a celebration of life.

El Dia de Los Muertos recognizes that life and death are all one journey and continuum that we all follow. It is a holiday that recognizes our ancestors and our connection to them.

You hear “La Llorona by Concrete Blonde y Los Illegals,” “Muerto, Canta, Toca, Baila” by The B-Side Players, “Angelita” by Sarah Fox & Joel Guzman, and many others.

Host Pocho Joe will play songs about death, life, and our existence on Sunday, October 31, at 1 pm. Let’s celebrate!!
