Dia de los Muertos
Many thousands of years ago in what is now Mexico, creepy sacrificial rituals in ancient pre-columbian cultures paid homage to the dead. Then the mighty Aztecs developed a month long festival that has become the modern Day of the Dead tradition. When the Spanish conquistadors conquered the Aztecs in the 1500s they anglicised the Day of the Dead tradition and merged it with Christian beliefs and traditions. Today the Day of the Dead is recognised the world over, and SIN VIDA is bringing the spirit of Dia de los Muertos to Brisbane, Australia.
