Cal Poly is celebrating Dia De Los Muertos on Sunday, Oct. 25 with the sounds of Latin alternative band Las Cafeteras.
“The show is vibrant and exciting,” said Denise Leader Stoeber, programming specialist for Cal Poly Arts. Stoeber has seen them perform once before and said “they are terribly exciting to watch.”
Las Cafeteras is a group of young musicians who have taken the hip-hop sound of East Los Angeles and married it to the music heard south of the Mexican border, Stoeber said.
“Students should come because they are a group of people your age,” Stoeber said. “They are young people who are making a career out of what they love to do.”
According to the Cal Poly Performing Arts website, Las Cafeteras will celebrate Dia De Los Muertos by honoring those who have passed with dance and songs.
The Cross Cultural Centers are partnering with Las Cafeteras in celebration of Dia De Los Muertos. They will have altars set up outside Spanos Theater on the patio to honor ancestors.
The show is on Sunday in Spanos Theatre at 7 p.m. Tickets are available online at pacslo.org.
Student rush tickets will be available for $10 starting at 6 p.m. Sunday.
