UCSB World Music Series Fall 2019

As part of the UCSB World Music Series, Mariachi Las Olas de SB will perform on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 12 pm at the UCSB Music Bowl. Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead (November 2nd) is celebrated widely throughout most of Northern America and Latin America with community and private remembrances of loved ones that have passed on. Altars are created in their honor that consist of the deceased's favorite personal articles, food, flowers, and music. Led by Juan Zaragoza, Mariachi Las Olas de SB will take you on a sonic journey with some of the music heard throughout homes and grave sites during this cultural celebration.
