Celebrate Dia de los Muertos (The Day of The Dead) with music and mask making.

23/24 Youth & Families

Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated by people of Mexican heritage. People make shrines to honor the deceased relatives featuring the person's favorite food and drink, and gifts. This holiday is a joyful celebration of those who have passed instead of a day of mourning. 

We welcome you to join us for music and mask making with the Grammy-winning Villalobos brothers who have captured the hearts of audiences around the world with their virtuosic musicianship, infectious energy and profound messages of love, brotherhood and social justice. You will learn more about the Day of the Dead and how to create traditional Mexican masks found at the celebration.

This workshop is best suited for youth ages 7 and up, but children 5 or younger can participate with adult assistance. 

This workshop is free. Please make sure to wear clothes which can get dirty as we will be using paint and other materials which can damage clothing.

     No tickets are needed for the HopStop events. All are welcome. For tickets to an accompanying concert in Claremont, see below.

Their music is deeply rooted in the traditions of Veracruz, showcasing a vibrant blend of Son Jarocho, Son Huasteco and Latin Jazz.

This remarkable project, produced by Kabir Sehgal, brought together renowned international musicians for a live concert at the Tijuana-San Diego border wall, leaving a lasting impact and serving as a testament to the power of music to bridge divides.

The Villalobos Brothers have graced prestigious stages around the world, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Davies Symphony Hall, the Latin Grammy Awards, Montreal Jazz Festival and the Ford Theatre in Hollywood, among many others.
