#4: Spotify honored the legacies of legendary artists on Día de Muertos


Día de Muertos was celebrated last week from Oct 31-Nov 2nd. If you feel like you want to learn more, I've got 2 cool initiatives to share: Three Arizona State University grads built DayOfTheDead.Holiday to dispel all the myths about the holiday and explain the meaning behind it. Read this Bustle article to learn more, AND Spotify did an amazing campaign to honor some of Mexican music’s most-beloved deceased icons and their lasting impact. You can check out this special playlist featuring songs from contemporary and legendary Mexican and Mexican-American greats, as well as covers done by 3 current artists. They also honored the life of Jenni Rivera and her musical legacy at LA's 19th annual Día de los Muertos festival. (Thanks to my friends at Latin @ Spotify for the submission!)
