      Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, has inspired much music in Latin American culture. Though closely associated with American Halloween festivities, El Día is a tradition more centered around honoring and paying tribute to one’s ancestors, who are considered to maintain a beneficial, watchful influence on the lives of their descendants. Today, we explore music celebrating many facets of this holiday.
