We invite you to observe Día de los Muertos early with one of Mexico’s greatest singers and cultural ambassadors, multi- Grammy® award winning singer, Lila Downs, in CALAVERA – a fiesta of music, dance and ritual. Lila brings her unique interpretation of traditional Mexican and Mesoamerican music, deeply personal renditions of classic rancheras, and her original songs to CALAVERA, a voyage of emotions, movement and sound that celebrates the rich traditions of Day of the Dead. The program features Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company, the premiere Los Angeles folk ballet company celebrating 15 years of dance; and Mariachi Femenil Flores Mexicanas, the leading all-female mariachi group in the Southwest. Their rich sound and inspiring musicianship is a strong yet elegant statement not typically seen in this traditionally male-dominated art form. Come dressed in your favorite Día de los Muertos outfits and makeup to share in the celebration that is CALAVERA!
