Latin Voices Live! 2014
November brings the usual assortment of ghoulish treats, and what better way to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos than to join a traditional Latin celebration, with a modern twist?
This year, we are pleased to be involved with two events – MEXSAS’s Dia De Muertos on 30 October at Sussex University campus and Ghost Worlds on Friday 28 November at Eastbourne’s Towner.
