Mariachi, Frida Kahlo, Tacos, Tequila – experience one of Mexico’s key cultural festivals, Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), as it comes to life in Singapore this November!
Held at the iconic, colonial-styled old Beach Road Police Station (99 Beach Road), the event will see musicians and artists from Mexico and Singapore come together to honour the lives of the dead, celebrating with traditional music, food and art.
Gracing the event is Ambassador of Mexico to Singapore, Mr Nathan Wolf.
In conjunction with Frida Kahlo’s 110th birth anniversary, the event’s altar installation and exhibition is also a homage to the Mexican painter. All pieces are inspired by Frida
Kahlo, and exclusive to this year’s edition of Día de Muertos Singapore.
The event will include fun-filled activities for all ages, such as an augmented reality installation of Disney/Pixar’s upcoming movie feature Coco, as well as Mexican craft making workshops that both children and families will enjoy.
Mexican cuisine is listed as one of the top 10 in the world – get a taste of the country’s rich gastronomy with dishes from local Mexican restaurants such as Señor Taco signature array of tacos and quesadillas, as well as Margaritas’ tamales (steamed pork with masa dumplings, wrapped in corn husks), elotes (Mexican street-style corn on the cob) and more!
In response to the earthquakes that struck a few weeks ago in Mexico, Singapore Red Cross will also be collaborating with the organisers to accept donations at the event to help victims of the tragedy.
