2019-11-01 Day of the Dead (and a dash of Halloween)

Dia de Muertos band

Songs about ancestors from Mexico and many other cultures and traditions this week to celebrate Dia de los Muertos. Plus a few Halloween tunes, just because.

Note: The playlist is a bit shorter this week, because between songs we asked for your support of KAOS Community Radio. If you’re not already a KAOS member, click that link and get it done! Thanks!
