Dia De Los Muertos With Rubén Albarrán and Carla Morrison

Event Description

Approaching its 11th season, this year’s Dia de los Muertos festivities include traditional Aztec blessings, Calavera costumes, Day of the Dead altars with a $3000 prize for the best one (you read that correctly) and Cafe Tacvba’s own Ruben Albarran performing with his new project Hoppo, and special guest Carla Morrison are a few of the events planned at Hollywood Forever Cemetary’s Dia de los Muertos extravaganza on October 30th. From the official press release:

• The traditional procession will take place at 2:00 p.m., as Calpulli Huehuetiliztli will guide the spirits to
the transition into the afterlife. Aztec rituals, such as the Fire Dance and spiritual cleansing, will follow.
• Amuse the little ones at the Children’s Space with storytelling time’s “Myths and History from
Zimbabwe to Mexico.” Plus art workshops and face painting.
• For the first time ever, the musical encounter “El Fandango” will present a collective of Soneros,
Zapateado Jarocho, Huapangeros, Trovadores and dancers from Veracruz, Mexico.
• The main stage will feature special performances by the rock-folk group “Hoppo” presented by Café
Tacvba’s lead singer, Ruben Albarran. Also, singer songwriter Carla Morrison will offer a set of Mexican
classics with a special tribute to late Lhasa de Sela.
• The scenery will muse over sketchy heroes like Francisco Villa, Zapata, and Hidalgo, Jose Maria Morelos
y Pavon.
• The ghosts of the Mexican Revolution and Independence will parade around the cemetery.
• Representing African traditions the marimba ensemble Masanga will be performing music for burial
ceremonies from Zimbabwe.

Is there really anything else that can compete with this? We think not!
