Hasta la Muerte: A Day of the Dead Show
ABOUT THE SHOW
The pageantry, emotion, and captivating music of the Mexican celebration of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) will fill the Loeb Playhouse stage when Las Cafeteras brings its Hasta La Muerte show to Purdue.
The East Los Angeles band is versatile in sound and in performance, as it fuses Afro-Mexican, Son Jarocho, Americana, and soul with hip-hop and spoken into the unique sound that had NPR raving, “Creative, socially conscious it’s perfect.”
For Hasta La Muerte, Las Cafeteras presents its most theatrical show yet, with choreography, elaborate costumes and the familiar stylized skull face paint. The two-act performance examines the stages of grief and loss through the celebration of life and death.VISIT ARTIST WEBSITE
