Music can be more than a melody and a beat. At South Broadway Cultural Center’s Festividad de los Muertos, you can drop off the favorite music of a lost loved one at their community ofrenda (an altar for offerings). These unique sonic donations will serve as a soundtrack to the day-long celebration, which will include live entertainment, face painting, silhouette making and refreshments. The event is free, but you might want to bring a few bones—not those of the dead—for the art market. The celebration will be preceded by a screening of La Festividad de los Muertos-Lanii Xtee Tugul, an in-depth documentary about the Día de los Muertos practices of the Zapotec people in Oaxaca, Mexico. On Nov. 7 the film will be screened again, this time featuring talks from its very creators.
