The 14th annual "Dia de Los Muertos" at Hollywood Forever will take place on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 from 12pm until Midnight. The mainstage headliner will be legendary vocalist and former lead singer of the bands Caifanes and Jaguares, Saul Hernandez. Saul Hernandez creates music that reflects the present and is rooted in the most telluric past. Performed live, his music is more than a concert: it is a ritual.
The theme for this year celebration is El Magico Mundo de Los Alebrijes - The Magical World of Alebrijes. Alebrijes are brightly colored Mexican folk art sculptures of fantastical creatures. The first alebrijes, along with use of the term, originated with Pedro Linares. After dreaming of the creatures while sick in the 1930s, he began to create what he saw in cardboard and paper mache. Today Alebrijes are a vibrant part of the culture of Oaxaca.
