We officially have a trailer for Disney/Pixar’s Día de los Muertos-inspired film, “Coco.” The movie features an all-Latino cast, including the voices of Gael Garcia Bernal and Benjamin Bratt. It was also written and co-directed by Adrian Molina, who previously worked as an animator on “Ratatouille” and as a storyboard artist on “Toy Story 3.”

According to Aztec mythology, the xoloitzcuintle helped the souls of the dead pass through to the underworld, called Mictlán.

And, yes. The golden marigold is featured prominently throughout the movie.

They’re the same flowers you usually see on Day of the Dead altars.

Legit, this looks like one beautiful film.

This Salsa Take On Beethoven’s 5th Symphony Is Something To Behold

This take on a classical song will make you want to dance.

It was 2010 in Oslo, Norway when composer Sverre Indris Joner treated his audience to an unexpected remix of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. This twist on a Beethoven classic will get you out of your chair and dancing around the room in no time at all. Almost from the beginning, we are introduced to the signature sounds of salsa: conga, drums, and trumpets. It is exceptional to hear just how beautifully the two types of music mesh together.
