Dia de los Muertos LIVE

Featuring La Santa Cecilia, Mexrrissey, and Mariachi Flor de Toloache

For the first time ever, these three exciting Mexican artists are coming together to celebrate Dia de los Muertos by showcasing the diverse sounds of modern Mexico in Dia De Los Muerto LIVE. Los Angeles-based La Santa Cecilia’s unique sound blends Latin rhythms with rock and world music, earning them a Grammy for Best Latin Rock Album. Mexrrissey caringly reimagines songs by Morrissey and The Smiths in Spanish with a definitive Mexican instrumentation and voice. Grammy-nominated Mariachi Flor de Toloache is the first all-female mariachi group, whose distinct interpretation of this musical tradition most recently got them on tour with Dan Auerbach’s band The Arcs.
