PRAY on Day of the Dead
Day of the Dead is one of the biggest dates in the Mexican calendar and it’s purpose it to gather families and friends to pray for their deceased. This national holiday takes place on November 1 and to celebrate Olmeca Altos is collaborating with wahaca to host a four-day festival of music, food, art and film at The Old Vic Tunnels.
The Tunnels will be transformed with an exhibition of work by Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide, work by Mexican artist Dr. Lakra and newly commissioned installations of visual arts by the London based Le Gun collective, British artist Hew Locke and Nancy Fouts. Performing each night are metal, jazz and world music blenders Rodrigo y Gabriela.
Food is served by Wahaca’s Street Kitchen and Olmeca Altos bartenders are serving cocktails such as this Jasmine Tea Margarita.
If you can’t get to the Tunnels we’re giving away a bottle of Olmeca Altos Plata for you to win, make a few Margarita’s at home and toast your lost loves.
