2011-10-28: Halloween & Dia de los Muertos music

Like zombies digging their way out of the cemetery, spooky global tunes this week to celebrate Halloween, plus some perhaps less spooky songs about ancestors and the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Things didn’t work out for the planned interview with Cuban jazz innovator Omar Sosa, but we still spun some of his music and gave away some tickets to his show next week at Jazz Alley in Seattle. Congratulations to the winners, and to everyone who listened all the way through this scaaaaary show.jackolantern planet
