Join a re-imagined Día de los Muertos celebration with month-long opportunities to come together and remember those we have lost. See the full list of happenings here on our blog.

In today's programming bring the beautiful music of Día de los Muertos to your home thanks to Ensamble Musical de Senderos in a prerecorded musical performance filmed at Evergreen Cemetery.

Music during Día de los Muertos celebrates the sounds our loved ones once moved to as we surround ourselves with the sounds they enjoyed while living. With all the different elements guiding the spirits (like cempazúchitl), music is meant to bring the spirits joy while visiting the altar.

To help you bring the sounds of Día de los Muertos to your home, enjoy this musical performance by Ensamble Musical de Senderos. You may remember this ensemble from years past as they led the 800 person procession from the MAH through the Santa Cruz Mission State Historic Park and to Evergreen Cemetery.
