Un altar de sonido para el Día de Muertos para este año, y seis más

It's that time of year, when NPR's Alt.Latino constructs an audio ofrenda, full of pan de muerto (Mexico in my Kitchen), papel picado (Mexican Folk Art Guide), melodic treats for the departed, to guide them back to this world so we may celebrate with them. Alt.Latino's Sonic Altar For Día De Los Muertos, 2019. Prior years: 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014, 2013 (hosted by Felix Contreras, except for 2015 and 2013, which were hosted by Jasmine Garsd).

In addition to taking song requests and telling stories of loved ones who have passed on, these shows encapsulate some of the violence and deaths of the year prior. A really nice mix of the personal and communal, plus a range of music, from somber to celebratory. And it made me think of Index Librorum Prohibitorum's lovely personal story in the Coco FanFare thread.

Thanks. I had been neglecting NPR and this is a great reintroduction.
