Exploring the Metropolis

The collaboration began with the music composition. The idea for the region of Oaxaca was to focus on Dia de los Muertos and mix Afro-Mexican and native music into the production. We were hoping to use this in our 2020 Dia de Muertos production, but may present this particular component in late 2021. Through discussions, it was decided to focus on the region of Chihuahua to start. 

George developed original music from the region of Chihuahua. He developed three original compositions that are informed by roots of the traditional music, but also allow for creativity.
