Todos Santos: Day of the Dead in Veracruz, MexicoAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
MEXICO, Veracruz, Tantoyuca, Nov 1- Nov 4, 2009. Making the souls of the dead feel welcome as they return for a yearly visit, Mexicans in this tropical state offer not only elaborate feasts and flower-filled altars, but dancing as well. Masked bands of performers called “cuadrillos” rehearse for months their choreography, rich with symbolic roles for men, women, devils, and death itself, then over the course of two nights regale both graveyards and city streets with whoops of laughter, raise-the-roof dancing and music until dawn.
