Every year, URBAN-15’s Carnaval de San Anto transforms into Carnaval de los Muertos for a very special performance in honor of All Saints Day and All Souls Day. An organic altar with special costumes, choreography, and rhythms designed by URBAN-15 members themselves, this annual performance ritual combines traditional Mexican culture and URBAN-15’s Brazilian and Portuguese dance and rhythms to create a presentation that pays tribute to our passed loved ones.

Carnaval de los Muertos has been an annual URBAN-15 tradition since the early 1990s, when the ensemble would make visits to the Alamo Camposanto, San Fernando Cathedral, Main Plaza and San Fernando Cemeteries. In recent years, URBAN-15 has performed in Hemisfair’s Plaza México, the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, the Instituto Cultural de México, and appeared for presentations at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, Market Square, Centro Cultural Aztlan, and the Rinconcito de Esperanza.
