On November 4th at the Canton Palace Theatre, history will be made with The Labra Brothers and the Canton Symphony Orchestra. The Labra Brothers are more than just “a band.” They are an ensemble of musical brothers in song, multi-instrumental in craft and a dynamic representation of Latin music. They are inspired by brotherhood, family, and the beauty of our human condition. This concert will be in celebration of Día de los Muertos, the day where the dead are reunited with the living in a festival of food, song, and dance. We will honor this day with the construction of a community altar at The Auricle.

Presented by:

The Labra Brothers

There was no moment in particular that inspired The Labra Brothers to create music together, which is part of what makes their story so unique. Having been raised in rustbelt northeast Ohio by parents with diverse musical backgrounds of their own, the Brothers developed a broad musical palette over the course of their younger years – which combined the blues sounds of John Lee Hooker & Stevie Ray Vaughan, the folk & country vibes of Willie Nelson and Garth Brooks, the latin & world influence of Marc Anthony & Carlos Santana, the iconic mariachi music of Vicente Fernandez, and the overt versatility and chicano swagger displayed by Los Lobos of East LA. More than a mere appreciation for music was the early discovery of their own musical talents, and the sheer love for playing and singing the songs of their strongest influences. Before long, the squad of siblings were putting their talents to work within their own original creations. They had discovered their ability to so effortlessly fall into an instrumental groove, and sing in harmony so naturally, that one could only assume it was the product of some kind of mystical family telepathy. For these boys, music was more than a talent or skill, it had become an inherent quality, a device for communication, shared between brothers.

Stark si sue Puede

Before the performance, the Canton Latino Festival,  Canton Symphony Orchestra, and The Labra Brothers will construct a community altar located at The Auricle. All are welcome to attend.

The gathering will take place on November 3rd and timed with downtown Canton First Friday activities.

Día de los Muertos

Known in English as the “Day of the Dead,” Día de los Muertos is a multi-day holiday of joyful celebration rather than mourning, where family and friends gather to pay respects and remember their friends and family members who have passed away. A blend of Mesoamerican ritual, European religion and Spanish culture, the holiday is celebrated each year from October 31-November 2. While October 31 is Halloween, November 2 is All Souls Day or the Day of the Dead. According to tradition, the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31 and the spirits of children can rejoin their families for 24 hours. The spirits of adults can do the same on November 2.

Traditions connected with the holiday include honoring the deceased making calaveras (colorful decorated fake skulls,) building home alters with the favorite foods and beverages of the deceased, and visiting the graves with similar items. Today, it is widely observed in Mexico, where it largely developed, as well as being observed throughout the world by people of Mexican heritage.
