5 covers in ukulele for day of the dead

Something that should never be missing in a holiday in Mexico is music. Day of the Dead is not far behind as songs have also been made to remember our dead or remember what death means to us mortals. There are some traditional songs for Day of the Dead such as La Llorona, La Bruja, or folk songs like Lila Downs' style with Viene la Muerte. In this blog we bring you 5 covers of current songs to enjoy this Day of the Dead with your Ukulele.

1 The crystal - Mon Laferte (Brissa López - Cover)

This song recalls the pain and nostalgia that we have when we are in the farewell of a loved one. The Crystal is the only thing that separates us for this last farewell and we can only say goodbye with the soul that is now broken as Mon Laferte says.

2.- La llorona - Popular song (Flora de Chazal - Cover)

La Llorona refers to a Mexican goddess: La Cihuacóatl who was the protector of the births and mother of Mixcóatl whom she abandoned. Tradition says that he always returns to look for his son, but instead finds a sacrificial knife. It is said that in the great Tenochtitlan the lament of La Cihuacóatl was heard that cried for his children, the Mexicas, because they were going to be destroyed.

3.- Skulls and Devils - The Fabulous Cádillacs (Alex Solio - Cover)

The main idea of ​​Calavras and Diablitos is contained in the lines "I do not want to die without having loved but I do not want to die of love" where it reminds us that life is about love, feeling and being free but reminding us that death is inevitable .

4- Halloween - José Madero (Solrac! And Fanie Freckles - Cover)

This song tells us about a more contemporary costume party in which José Madero asks "What is your costume? Do you dress for me just?" So this song is about someone who suffers from love at a costume party.

5 Danse Macabre - Saint-Saëns

The macabre Dance, opus 40, is a symphonic poem composed in 1874 by Camille Saint-Saëns, inspired by a poem by Henri Cazalis recreating the ancient superstition of the Dance of Death. It is one of the most popular compositions of its author.

This was our list of songs for Day of the Dead. What songs do you think we were missing?
