Día de los Muertos


Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican celebration to pay homage to those who have passed. Families create private altars called ofrendas—sugar skulls, marigolds, and favorite foods/drinks of the dead—and visit graves with gifts. There are also parades and festivals that often make this day a public holiday. Using staple band repertoire, this Mexican tradition is honored and brought to life.
