The Connections series continues October 30 at MECA Houston, with ROCO’s annual Musical & Literary Ofrenda celebrating Día de los Muertos, presented in collaboration with MECA Houston and Grupo de Teatro Índigo.
Bass-baritone Timothy Jones and a trio of ROCO musicians feature in a recent work written by Mexican composer Alejandro Basulto, Songs of the Departed. Based on the sensitive, lyrical poetry of Amado Nervo, each short song is a remembrance of a family member..
Following ROCO’s performance, Grupo de Teatro Índigo will present their 8th annual Day of the Dead play, “Calavera con Calavera” (Skulls); an original piece written by co-founder, Eddie Gonzalez.
Part of the events celebrating the anniversary of the Consulado General de México en Houston, the production explores the holiday’s tradition and meaning, and will include live traditional Mexican songs and dances, accompanied by mariachi musicians from University of Houston Downtown, and performers from Danza Chikawa Dance.
