Dia de los Muertos 2022
On Oct. 27, UC San Diego students, staff, faculty and community members were invited to join in a storytelling and musical performance event to learn about the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) tradition. The event began with an educational skit by Teatro Izcalli, a San Diego-based Chicana/o comedy group led by alumnus Macedonio Arteaga Jr. and his wife Alicia Chavez-Arteaga, which included Aztec dancing. The evening concluded with a spectacular musical performance by East Los Angeles band Las Cafeteras, with special guest Lupita Infante. Their two-part show encompassed the grief of death and the celebration of afterlife.
