La Santa Cecilia

Grammy-winning Latin band La Santa Cecilia will headline First District Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez’s popular Dia De Los Muertos celebration set for Saturday, November 4.

The fourth annual event, hosted by Gonzalez’s office and Opus Technique, in conjunction with title sponsor AARP, will be held in downtown Long Beach on Pine Avenue, between 4th and 6th streets.

Aside from La Santa Cecilia, which combines traditional Mexican music with other forms of music, other performers include KCRW’s DJ Raul Campos and KM.

“I am excited to announce the lineup of this year’s Dia De Los Muertos Celebration,” Gonzalez said in a statement. “These artists represent a diverse collection of music, culture and will be an amazing addition to this event.”

According to Gonzalez’s office, this event has become the second-largest celebration in Southern California. Last year over 7,000 people attended the event.
