Dia de los Muertos (10/20/14 – 10/26/14)

20 Oct

This time of year is marked in many cultures by holidays that celebrate the connection between the living and the dead. In Mexico, Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is celebrated as a joyful time of remembrance. This week, we’ll pay our respects to some world musicians who passed away in the last few years.
