On May 30th, in honor of Dia de los Muertos The Caverns is hosting a special event to be aired on PBS later this year. The celebration of The Day of the Dead has become a globally recognized Latinx holiday, traditionally observed on the first two days of November. Dia de los Muertos sees families and friends of loved ones who have died pay respect with colorful, memorial gatherings often taking the air of a joyful celebration rather than of mourning for the departed.
Featuring the GRAMMY-winning amalgamation of rock and roll, Tex-Mex, zydeco and more Los Lobos, the salsa jazz stylings of Ozomatli, and all-female group Flor De Toloache. Known for mixing old-style Mariachi with a contemporary flair these ladies are also Latin GRAMMY Award-winners. The entire event is being taped especially for PBS to air on October 28th this year!
