      El Día de los Muertos

      Listen to the Program

      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.
